Rhondda Cynon Taf to go into lockdown Published Date: 17/09/2020

A second county in Wales will go into lockdown because of the rate of coronavirus cases.

The 240,000 people living in Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT) will have restrictions imposed on their daily lives.

The new restrictions include all licensed pubs, bars and restaurants will have to shut by 23:00 every day, once the lockdown comes into effect.

People will also be banned from meeting people outside their own households indoors.

Part of the local outbreak has been blamed on a trip to Doncaster races as part of a Government trial of allowing spectators back to professional sports.  A statement on Wednesday evening from the Welsh Government clarified the party did not attend the races being held in the South Yorkshire town, as part of a pilot event for 2,500 people.
