"Welsh government closes campsites and caravan parks, and restricts access to beauty spots


Caravan parks and campsites in Wales are being closed to visitors from today, Mark Drakeford, the Welsh first minister, has announced. And some beauty spots are effectively being “closed” to tourists too. In a statement he said:


Wales is a beautiful country and attracts millions of visitors every year – but now is not the time for unnecessary journeys. We want people to come to Wales when the threat of coronavirus has passed.


Today, we are taking action to close caravan parks, campsites and some of our most recognisable visitor sites to keep people safe and to reduce the pressure on our NHS.


My message is simple. Please stay at home and save lives.


According to the Welsh government, people in caravan parks or campsites in Wales on holiday will be asked to return home from today, unless there are exceptional reasons why they should stay. People who live permanently in park homes are not affected.


Among the beauty spots being “closed” are Snowdon in north Wales and Sugar Loaf and Pen-y-Fan in the Brecon Beacons. Access to these mountains is being restricted."
