Awaiting information from Public Health Wales as to self-isolation dates. Will update as soon as I hear. Any child who is not a contact - parents will be phoned. If you do not receive a phone call, your child is a contact and must self-isolate - which means staying in doors, with no visitors to the house.

Children's play areas in Cardiff Council's parks are closed due to the risk of transmitting COVID-19. If you go to the parks for your daily exercise, the Council are asking for people to not gather in groups, to practise social distancing rules and to keep children off the equipment. There is a risk the parks will have to close, if the rules are not followed.
