CCC Coronavirus Update - 17 July 2020

Town centres prepare to get back to business

Carmarthenshire’s town centres are being prepared to welcome shoppers back after months of closure due to Covid-19 restrictions.

We have created videos for our three main towns to show residents and visitors alike how the towns now look with the new signage in place.

Guidance for the safe use of multi-purpose community facilities

As many town and community councils are working towards the re-opening of facilities we are sharing our social distancing toolkit which may be of use to those looking at the re-opening of your community halls.

Community centres, village halls, and other multi-use community facilities support a wide range of local activity. However, their communal nature also makes them places that are vulnerable to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Welsh Government is due to publish guidance to support community centres to re-start

The guidance will be for those managing multi-use community facilities to prepare for re-opening. It will signpost to relevant guidance on a range of different activities that can take place in these spaces.

In the meantime, we have produced additional guidance to help you apply a 5-step approach to re-opening, as well as an FAQs section to answer any concerns you may have.

We will continue to update this information, please let us know if there is anything you’d like us to add to our website, If you require any further support or guidance on signage please email us on

Re-opening of public toilets

We have support and guidance available to you if you are working on the re-opening of your public conveniences.

If you would like to see a copy of our safeguarding practices and risk assessment please email us at

There is also guidance from Welsh Government for providing safer toilets for public use during Coronavirus. This guidance contains principles and steps for owners and operators of public toilets to consider in planning the re-opening and management of toilets as safely as possible.

Posters - we have developed a clear and consistent message to reassure visitors and workers as they return to work, rest and play - Keeping Carmarthenshire Safe. If you require support with signage there are a number of posters available for you to download and display where required - space has been left at the bottom to add your own logo / branding.

A phased opening for council play areas

Council owned play areas will begin to re-open on Monday after months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There will be a phased opening of the 15 sites with Pembrey Country Park and North Dock opening first following the easing of Covid-19 restrictions. Both Park Howard play areas will open on Tuesday.

Carmarthenshire County Council is urging users to behave responsibly, and in line with current social distancing measures.
