Reminder of rules as cases continue to drop in Denbighshire
Coronavirus cases in Denbighshire are continuing to fall during the current lockdown.
For the period between January 26 and February 1 there were 112 new cases in the county and as of January 31 the case rate was 148.4 per 100,000.
Residents who have completed a period of self-isolation following a positive case of coronavirus are being reminded they do not need to take a further test.
However, if you still have Covid-19 symptoms then you will need to continue to self-isolate and seek medical advice.
Cllr Mark Young, Denbighshire County Council’ Lead Member for Planning, Public Protection and Safer Communities, said: “We are reminding residents who have had a positive coronavirus test and completed their period of self-isolation that they do not need to have a further test before ending their isolation period.
“Once the isolation period is over, and you aren’t displaying symptoms, you are able to return to work and leave your home for exercise or other actions permitted during the current lockdown without a second test.
“However, during the period of self-isolation it is vital not to leave your home for any reason. You and everyone else in your household must stay at home for the whole time you are self-isolating, this includes not going out to exercise.”
During the current restrictions residents are reminded of Welsh Government regulations which state you must stay at home, meet only the people you live with, work from home if you can, wear a face covering where required, wash your hands regularly and stay 2 metres from anyone you do not live with.
Cllr Young added: “I am pleased to see cases of coronavirus continuing to fall in the county due to the hard work of our residents. However, with the new variant of the virus that spreads more easily, it is important we all continue to follow the rules around coronavirus and help keep our communities safe.”
