Covid-19

Covid-19 Update (07.08.21)

WALES MOVES TO ALERT LEVEL ZERO

At alert level zero, the changes include:

no legal limits on the number of people who can meet, including in private homes, public places or at events
no legal requirement for 2m social distancing, table service, controlled entry and collecting details for Test, Trace, Protect – these are now ‘reasonable measures’ which should be considered as part of the Risk Assessment
face coverings will not be a legal requirement in restaurants, cafés and pubs but should be considered as part of the Risk Assessment (e.g. when queueing). Face coverings will remain a legal requirement in most other indoor public place

Also on 7 August (from 00.01), adults who are fully vaccinated will no longer need to isolate if they are identified as close contacts of someone who has coronavirus.

Covid-19 Update (14.07.21)

From 17 July, Wales will move fully to alert level one, including:

Up to six people can meet indoors in private homes and holiday accommodation.
Organised indoor events can take place for up to 1,000 seated and up to 200 standing.
Ice rinks can reopen.

Wales will also take the first step into alert level zero as the limits on the numbers of people who can meet in public places or at events will be removed. Outdoor premises and events will also have greater flexibility around physical distancing.

If Wales moves to alert level zero on 7 August, all premises would be able to open and most – but not all – restrictions will be removed and replaced with the ongoing requirement for all organisations and businesses to carry out Covid risk assessments. These will determine what reasonable measures are needed to be put in place to keep workers and customers and visitors safe.

There will also be no legal limits on the number of people who can meet others indoors, including in private homes.

Face coverings will continue to be required by law in most indoor public places and on public transport at alert level zero from 7 August, with the exception of hospitality settings.

Guidance is in both the laundrette and shower facilities which will remain in place as an ongoing requirement

Covid-19 Update (17/05/21)

Following the latest government annoucement, we are pleased to advise that all shared facilities – so our launderette and showers can now reopen.
Further guidance is in both facilities with clear instructions to be followed at all times.

Covid-19: Update (02.05.21)

From Monday (3 May), people from two households will be able to form an extended household allowing them to meet indoors. We understand this will apply to tourist accommodation and that the Welsh Government guidance and FAQs will be updated shortly.

Indoor swimming pools, gyms and fitness facilities can reopen on Monday (3 May).

17 May is the indicative date for the reopening of the remaining tourist accommodation which would include wash blocks, to be confirmed by the next Welsh Government. The rule of four will then apply for indoor hospitality (cafés, pubs and restaurants), up to four people from four households.

Covid-19: Update (26.03.21)

This confirms that we can now open the park to self-contained accommodation to single households/support bubbles from Wales from tomorrow (27 March).

The statement advises, ‘The stay local rule will be replaced by an interim all-Wales travel area, which will remain in place until April 12, subject to the public health situation. For the next two weeks, only those with a reasonable excuse, such as work, will be able to travel into or out of Wales.’

Covid-19: Update (13/03/2021)

Following a recent government announcement, we are pleased to announce that we can open the park on Saturday 27th March 2021 at 9 am, to self contained units only, this also includes our seasonal tourers.

Up date 04/12/20

After a long wait this week we can now confirm the following new guidance regarding travel from England into Wales from 6pm today.

Travel in to Wales from Tier 3 areas in England, level three and four areas in Scotland and from Northern Ireland is not allowed at present, without a reasonable excuse, having a holiday is not currently considered a reasonable excuse, although we hope to be able to welcome you back in the not too distant future.
In addition, the guidance confirms that caravan owners may travel to secure their caravan for winter, although those from Tier 3 in England, Levels 3 and 4 in Scotland and all of Northern Ireland may not stay overnight.

Travel in to Wales from Tiers 1 and 2 in England and Levels 0, 1 and 2 in Scotland are able to travel to holiday on parks which are open. We encouraged everyone to ‘think carefully about our/your own lives and what changes we can make to reduce our risk’

The requirement that people must only take a holiday with their own household is confirmed. You will only be able to share holiday accommodation with the people you live with (or anyone who is there to provide care or assistance to a vulnerable person). This helps to reduce the risk of coronavirus being transmitted significantly, as sleeping in close proximity to other people carries a high risk of transmission due to the length of time you spend near each other.

If you could please kindly still follow all the safety guidance that is in place at Gwynfair.

Track and Trace is still in place, please continue to text when you arrive and leave the park to go home. (07481 903899) including your plot number.

Please all take care and stay safe and we will see you all soon.

Up date 06/11/20

We will be reopening the park again on Monday 9th November after our short fire break, for those living in Wales, travel restrictions will be lifted. Hopefully the new travel restrictions for England will only last for a short time and you will all be able to join us in December just in time for our first Christmas and New Year which we are really looking forward too.

Drain down/Reconnection and gas test service will still be available for those families wanting to close at the start of December and January. The park will remain open until the 21st February 2021 and reopening for the new season on 1st March 2021. All reconnections will be completed for the 2021 season. If you require this service please let me know.

Track and Trace is still in place, please continue to text when you arrive and leave the park to go home. (07481 903899) including your plot number.

Please all take care and stay safe and we will see you all soon.

Up date 19.10.20

The Welsh First Minister has announced a time-limited, ‘fire break’ lockdown from
6pm on Friday 23 October until 9am Monday 9 November.

All hospitality and tourism businesses will be closed along with non-essential retail etc,
the people of Wales required to stay at home and observe strict travel bans.

We want to thank all our customers for being so understanding in helping to protect the health and wellbeing of all residents and the local community.

We are hoping that this will only be a 2 week closure, and I will keep everyone updated on any further information as and when we receive it.

Take care and keep safe everyone.

Up date 17.10.20

Travel regulations will come into force at 6pm 16/10/2020 banning travel into Wales from areas with higher incidence of the virus:

Those from areas of higher incidence across the UK will be permitted to make arrangements with you to collect their belongings and prepare their touring caravan for winter as they will close on 31st October for the end of the season, so long as they do not stay overnight.

With the prospect of the ‘fire break’ lockdown, this may be a short window of opportunity.

Up date 30.09.20

We have been guided by the Welsh government to start using the NHS Covid-19 App, we have displayed the QR code at locations around the park, were possible please download the app, scan the code and check in.

Up date 23.09.20

The First Minister confirmed in his press conference at lunchtime that in advising on essential travel, he is asking people in Wales ‘to think carefully about where you go and who you are meeting’, ‘to make sensible judgements in their own circumstances… it is not a message about … not going to holiday, it is just asking people to think about the journeys they make …’.
He confirmed that Welsh Government has decided that a stay-local regulation would not be proportionate at this time and confirmed ‘’there is no evidence that … visitors have led to local spikes … Coronavirus remains at its lowest levels in the holiday areas of Wales’. As in Scotland and England, measures are being introduced across the whole of Wales to introduce a 10.00pm curfew on the sale of alcohol and a table service only in pubs, clubs, restaurants etc.

Could we kindly remind you to let us know when you arrive and leave the park (07481 903899) and include your plot number. 😀

No more than six people to socialise together indoors

From Monday 14th of September, only a maximum of six people from the extended household will be able to meet indoors at any one time. This rule applies in pubs and restaurants as well as in people’s homes. Children under 11 will not be counted in the six. Unlike in England, up to 30 people can still meet outside, including in people’s gardens, provided they maintain social distancing.

Local authority powers

Local authorities will be given new powers in order to reduce the spread of coronavirus by closing premises and preventing events happening on public health grounds.

Up to four households will be able to join together to form a single extended household.
