Carmarthenshire County Council Coronavirus News Update 16th October 2020

Concerning rise of Covid-19 cases in Carmarthenshire

You may have heard talk in the media about a potential ‘circuit-breaker’, currently being considered by the Welsh Government.

As part of our regular tactical planning groups we are planning for all eventualities,and we’re in constant dialogue with Welsh Government colleagues.
The First Minister has said that a decision will be announced on Monday. Please be assured that we will bring you up to date as soon as we can and provide you with any relevant information.

Today, we have announced the outcome of our most recent review of restrictions in the Llanelli area, and how the situation is looking across Carmarthenshire.

The good news is that the health protection zone covering a large part of Llanelli is working well and helping bring down the number of positive Covid-19 cases, however concerns are increasing about the spread of Covid-19 elsewhere in Carmarthenshire.

Residents living in the zone are being thanked for their efforts and asked to keep up the good work for at least another week to help bring numbers down even further.

We continue to work with Hywel Dda University Health Board and Welsh Government to keep the situation under constant review.

Stay safe this Halloween and bonfire night

Carmarthenshire County Council is working with Dyfed Powys Police and Mid and West Wales Fire Brigade to ensure everyone stays safe this Halloween and bonfire night.

Covid-19 restrictions mean the autumn festivities will be impacted.

The council will also be sharing safety messages from its partners as part of the annual Op Bang campaign over the next few weeks and would like to suggest that all town and community councils do the same. Please follow this link to read more about the Op Bang campaign.

Remembrance 2020

The Remembrance period is vitally important to us all, in order that we can honour the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces community.

The Welsh Government fully appreciates that Local Authorities, town and community councils, along with charities and the Military, will be planning Remembrance activity for November 2020 and we want to ensure organisers have as much information available to them in order to plan Remembrance activity safely.


Given the current situation with Covid 19, it is clear that Remembrance this year will look somewhat different to previous years and will have to take account of the current situation, reflecting the regulations in place at the time to limit the spread of the virus. The Welsh Government will be marking the occasion, albeit in amended format, with participation at the opening of the Wales Field of Remembrance and Festival of Remembrance (online) led by the Royal British Legion, and the National Service of Remembrance which will take place in a limited capacity and subject to guidance at the time.

In order that organisers can adhere to guidelines and safely plan Acts of Remembrance, we are sharing the current national and local guidance for Wales regarding Covid 19.  Please follow this link to view the guidance. As this is a fast moving situation, we will circulate updates as they happen and would urge organisers to regularly check and monitor announcements regarding permitted activity relevant to the area.

Carmarthenshire Dormouse Nut Hunt

The Carmarthenshire Local Nature Partnership are organising a Dormouse Nut Hunt this autumn and winter and we hope you can help us.

We know that there has been a decline in the dormouse population nationally and their range has contracted to southern England and Wales. But how are they getting on in Carmarthenshire?

In fact, in Carmarthenshire, we know they are more widespread than previously thought, but as you can see from the map in the information attached there are still gaps where there is suitable habitat but no records. Are there dormice in these areas?

We would love it if you could help us.
