Coronavirus/COVID-19 information

Updated: 01.04.22

Coronavirus restrictions

Please wear a face mask or face covering when visiting our sites. They remain a legal requirement in health and social care settings in Wales. (Please note: Patients and visitors to outpatient areas / departments and inpatient wards MUST wear a SURGICAL MASK. If you don't have one, a member of staff will provide you with one.)

Please continue to wash your hands and use hand sanitiser regularly.

Other reasonable adjustments may also remain or be put in place following a risk assessment. Please follow on-site guidance.

However, other rules are changing in Wales from Monday, March 28th, 2022:

  1. You are no longer legally required to wear a face covering in shops and on public transport. However, wearing one is recommended.
  2. You are no longer legally required to self isolate, although it remains in the guidance. A £500 self-isolation payment to support people will continue to be available until June 2022.

The Welsh Government's next review of coronavirus restrictions takes place on April 14th, 2022.

Hospital visiting

We need to protect the many sick and vulnerable people in our hospitals from the coronavirus infections which are still in the community. This means that visiting must be kept to a minimum and only in specific circumstances. All visits must be arranged with the hospital in advance.
