CORONAVIRUS: 'CRUNCH TIME' FOR PEMBROKESHIRE

Public service leaders in South West Wales have issued a stark warning to residents and communities in Pembrokeshire after new figures showed coronavirus cases are growing in the county.
Pembrokeshire County Council, Hywel Dda University Health Board and Dyfed-Powys Police are working closely with Public Health Wales and Welsh Government officials to respond to growing concerns about increased community spread of the virus.
They are urging people and businesses to take action now to avoid local restrictions being brought in that could affect people living in the county.
Numbers are now rising in Pembrokeshire with 37 new positive cases in the county in the seven days between the 3rd and 9th October.
Sadly, to date Public Health Wales have recorded 69 deaths in the Hywel Dda University Health Board area from people who caught the virus.
People are being asked to take the risk seriously and consider how their actions may impact on more vulnerable members of our communities.
Pembrokeshire County Council Leader, David Simpson, said: "I am imploring the people of Pembrokeshire - and visitors - to follow the advice from our health experts and to halt the spread of coronavirus in our county.
"This advice is based on scientific evidence and we must all play our part in reducing the spread of the virus.
"Make no mistake, failure to act now will impact on our daily lives and potential restrictions will be imposed on us
"This is crunch time. If we don't follow the simple safety messages, we are increasing the risk of entering a lockdown situation again and nobody wants that to happen.
"So please, follow the precautions, look after one another and stay safe."
