Cardiff Liberal Democrat Group Leader Cllr Rhys Taylor responds to new lockdown measures for Cardiff.
Responding to the announcement that new COVID measures will be introduced for Cardiff, leader of the Liberal Democrat Group on Cardiff Council Cllr Rhys Taylor said:
"The rising numbers of positive cases, leading to further COVID restrictions for Cardiff, is very concerning and I know that many will be anxious about what we are seeing at the moment.
"I recognise the need to introduce measures to keep people safe and limit the spread of the virus. However, we need to be mindful of the impact of lockdown measures on people's mental health and wellbeing and the long-term impact that will have on many.
"We need to ensure that the Track, Trace and Protect arrangements for Cardiff and the Vale have the resources they need to help get us beyond this situation.
"We all need to stick to the new rules to keep us all safe and limit the spread of the virus."
