Public toilets in Denbighshire have been closed due to a rise in coronavirus cases in the area

Denbighshire Council made the decision to shut public conveniences, which came into effect on Friday, to keep staff and residents safe.

It comes as the rolling seven day total of Covid-19 cases per 100,000 of the population in the county stands at 418.

Councillor Julian Thompson-Hill, lead member for finance, performance and strategic assets, said: “Due to the recent increase in Covid-19 cases in Denbighshire the decision has been made to close all public conveniences until the end of this current lockdown period.

“With the new variant of the virus being significantly more virulent, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep both staff and residents safe while using the facilities.

“We would like to thank residents for their understanding and the public convenience team will use the closure period to carry out an extensive clean, and maintenance check of all 21 public convenience facilities throughout the authority, ensuring that they are ready and fit for use on re-opening at the end of the lockdown period.”
