Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Update

Caerphilly CBC has taken the decision and has adopted a consistent approach to ensure social distancing and restricting the potential of any form of gathering within our open spaces, along with other local authorities across Wales, in the interest of public health, and as a consequence the Council has closed children’s play areas, multi-use games areas (MUGAs), skate parks, municipal and country parks for which it is responsible from the 23 March until further notice.

This tough decision follows guidance from UK and Welsh Government to ensure social distancing in order to limit the spread of COVOID-19 Coronavirus and to protect our residents, especially those who are vulnerable. Residents are being urged to co-operate with these closures and not attempt to enter these spaces.
