An incident management team (IMT) has been set up after a number of Covid-19 cases were identified at a holiday park in Denbighshire.

There have been eleven positive coronavirus cases among staff at Lyons Robin Hood Park, Rhyl, with hospitality and indoor leisure facilities currently closed.

The rest of the site, including the swimming pool, remains open.

The IMT will manage the situation at the park and comprises of Denbighshire County Council, Public Health Wales and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

Nicola Stubbins, the council’s corporate director for communities, modernisation and wellbeing, said: “We are working closely with Lyons Robin Hood Park and arrangements are being made for staff to be tested.

“We would like to thank Lyons Robin Hood Park for their co-operation during this time.

“We are aware Covid-19 is still circulating in North Wales and we would like to reassure residents we are working to reduce any further spread.

“You can now go for a free Covid-19 test if you have a wider range of symptoms which include flu-like symptoms, not caused by a known condition, muscle ache or pain, excessive tiredness, persistent headache, runny nose or blocked nose, persistent sneezing, sore throat and/or hoarseness, shortness of breath or wheezing and generally feeling unwell.

“Anyone who develops Covid-19 symptoms should book a PCR test at a test centre immediately and following a positive result, residents should self-isolate and share all relevant information with TTP tracers and advisors.

“We are also reminding those eligible and not showing symptoms to undertake regular lateral flow tests at home, which are free and can be ordered online for home delivery.

“This will help stop the spread of the virus and keep cases down.

“We are reminding the public they have a vital role in preventing the spread of coronavirus and for them to remain vigilant and act cautiously.

“They can do this by adhering to Welsh Government regulations and by observing social distancing guidelines – that’s staying two metres away from others – and washing hands regularly.”

You can book a PCR test at www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or order a lateral flow test at www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests

You can also book a test by telephone on 119 between 7am and 11pm (calls are free).
