Carmarthenshire council has pledged to continue supporting businesses that are allowed to re-open following the easing of further restrictions.

The council's public protection officers are working closely with the tourism industry and business owners as they prepare to open back up after months of closure.

Officers will provide advice and guidance visits to premises inline with the latest Covid-19 regulations to ensure they are operating safely.

From Saturday, March 27 self-contained holiday accommodation was given the go-ahead to re-open for one household which includes hotels, self-catering outlets and caravanning that have their own facilities.

People are being reminded that when visiting premises, they are expected to maintain social distancing, wear a face mask in indoor public spaces (unless exempt) and regularly wash hands or hand sanitise.

On Monday, March 22 the first steps were taken to relax restrictions on the sale of non-essential items for shops that have been open throughout lockdown including supermarkets. Garden centres also re-opened.
