New coronavirus restrictions are being introduced in Bangor following a sharp rise in cases, First Minister Mark Drakeford tonight confirmed.

The new measures will come into force at 6pm on Saturday October 10 to protect people’s health and control the spread of the virus.

The new restrictions will apply to everyone living in eight wards, which make up the city of Bangor.

  • People will not be allowed to enter or leave the area without a reasonable excuse, such as travel for work or education;
  • People will only be able to meet people they don’t live with outdoors for the time being. They will not be able to form, or be in, extended households, with the exception of temporary bubbles for single people and single parents.
