Despite First Minister Mark Drakeford’s announcement last week that multi-purpose community centers, including community centers, village halls, church halls, and other community facilities, will open from Nov.
The advice comes from the county inter-agency body set up to advise and support the safe reopening of facilities in accordance with national guidelines.
The body was created under the subgroup of the Public Services Board of Ceredigion; Understand our communities.
Leading the development of the group are the Ceredigion Association of Voluntary Organizations (CAVO) and Ceredigion County Council in collaboration with Dyfed-Powys Police and the Fire and Rescue Service of Mid and West Wales.
The panel includes representatives from the fields of health and safety, environmental health and community safety.
A statement from the council states: “The panel strongly advises you to make every effort to carry out your activity digitally or by telephone.
“If not, consider whether it is possible to conduct your activity outdoors in accordance with the guidelines of the Welsh Government.
“Keeping your activity indoors should be considered as a last resort. If this is the only option and you absolutely need to meet, please keep the session short and involve as few people as possible, with all the necessary procedures and protocols in place.
“Those responsible for community activities should remember to keep a social distance of two meters, wear face covering in indoor public spaces, and wash their hands regularly for 20 seconds or use the hand sanitizer provided.
“Anyone responsible for community facilities can seek advice to ensure that the precautions are safe, secure, and compliance with national guidelines.
“Before a community facility is reopened, these administrative centers need to make sure it’s covid-free zones.”
The committee has set itself the goal of holding a meeting today, Wednesday, April 28, at 1.30 p.m. to support those responsible for the community facilities.
