Rhyl holiday park reminds guests to follow Welsh Covid rules after confirmed virus cases

North Wales news and information

A holiday park has reminded its guests to follow Welsh Covid rules after confirming several cases of the virus among staff members.

It was announced yesterday that there have been eleven positive coronavirus cases at Lyons Robin Hood Park in Rhyl, with hospitality and indoor leisure facilities currently closed.

An incident management team has been set up in response to the cases, which includes representatives from Denbighshire Council, Public Health Wales and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

A spokesperson for Lyons Holiday Parks has told North.Wales a mobile testing facility has been introduced at the Rhyl park to monitor cases.

They also called on guests to observe the different rules in place in Wales after restrictions in England were mostly relaxed on Monday.

They said: “We are aware of a small number of coronavirus cases at our flagship park, Lyons Robin Hood.

“We would like to reassure guests, owners, and local residents that we are working very closely with Denbighshire County Council to ensure that the number of cases does not grow which includes closing our main complex, implementing a one-in-one out system in reception and siting a mobile testing facility on the park.

“Our crazy golf and swimming facilities remain open.

“Cases are nationally on the rise at the moment, and with Lyons Robin Hood being one of the most popular holiday parks on the coast, we’d like to remind all of our guests that Wales’ restrictions differ to those in England.

“Masks are still mandatory in public spaces and we are observing social distancing throughout all of our facilities. These measures add another layer of protection during this time.

“The track and trace process implemented by the government is to be commended, and it meant that the number of cases were kept to a minimum.”
