We hope you have a Merry Christmas and New Year.

Please see attached and below new Keep Wales Safe campaign assets focusing on the importance of mask wearing, the self-isolation changes for the Omicron variant and the importance of lateral flow testing to protect others this Christmas.

Omicron: 

Welsh:

Yng Nghymru, os ydych wedi bod mewn cysylltiad agos â rhywun sydd ag amrywiolyn Omicron, rhaid i chi hunanynysu am 10 diwrnod beth bynnag fo'ch oedran neu statws brechu.

Bydd swyddog olrhain yn cysylltu os yw hyn yn berthnasol i chi ac os oes angen hunanynysu.

#DiogeluCymru

English:

In Wales, if you've been in close contact with someone who has the Omicron COVID-19 variant, you must self-isolate for 10 days regardless of your age or vaccination status.

Contact tracers will get in touch if this applies to you and if you need to self-isolate.

#KeepWalesSafe

Welsh:

Os ydyn ni'n dal ati i wneud y pethau cywir, gallwn ddiogelu ein gilydd.
Gwisgwch fasg, ewch i gael eich brechu, ewch am brawf a hunanynysu i ddiogelu pobl o'ch cwmpas a Thorri Trosglwyddiad COVID-19.
Diogelu Cymru gyda'n gilydd.

English:

'The more we keep on doing the right thing, the more we'll protect each other.

Wear a mask, get vaccinated, get tested and self-isolate to protect those around you and Disrupt the Transmission of COVID-19.

Together, we'll Keep Wales Safe.

Lateral flow test -protect others this Christmas (Static image attached)

Welsh:

Mae'r amrywiolyn Omicron yn risg sylweddol.

Rhaid inni wneud popeth y gallwn i ddiogelu Cymru.

Ewch am eich pigiad atgyfnerthu, gwisgwch fasg, cymerwch brawf llif unffordd cyn cwrdd ag eraill ac os oes gennych unrhyw symptomau, ewch am brawf PCR.

https://llyw.cymru/cael-prawf-coronafeirws-covid-19

English:

The Omicron variant poses a significant risk.

We must continue to do everything we can to keep Wales safe.

Please get your booster, wear a mask, take a lateral flow test before meeting others and if you have any symptoms, get a PCR test.

https://gov.wales/get-tested-coronavirus-covid-19

This week we’re sharing some of the key Keep Wales Safe messages, including a reminder of the protective behaviours we should be following. We can all help to stop the spread of COVID-19 even if we’ve been vaccinated by following this guidance.

Please find attached static images as well as a short animation video to share via your available communication channels here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sqnzcp4h21smk8k/AABTLkSNeLPBZ6Lzh5uodaaRa?dl=0

Some suggested copy to accompany these materials is provided below along with the hashtag #KeepWalesSafe:

Open windows/ Ventilation video:

Gallwn ddal ati i atal y lledaeniad COVID-19, hyd yn oed ar ôl cael y brechlyn.

Bydd gadael awyr iach i mewn i'ch cartref, swyddfa neu ofod busnes yn helpu i leihau lledaeniad y firws a #DiogeluCymru

We can still help to stop the spread of COVID-19 even if we've been vaccinated.

Letting fresh air in to your home, office or business space will help reduce the spread of the virus and #KeepWalesSafe.

Test/Self isolate white flow chart graphic

Os ydych chi'n oedolyn wedi'i frechu'n llawn neu 5-17 oed, a bod gan rywun yn eich cartref COVID, rhaid hunanynysu nes i chi gael PCR negatif. Heb frechu'n llawn? Rhaid hunanynysu am 10 diwrnod. Darllenwch y canllawiau a bwciwch brawf yma 👇

https://llyw.cymru/canllawiau-hunanynysu

We’re back having taken a short break to refocus the Keep Wales Safe and Help Us Help You campaigns. The next few weeks are vital for us to stay at alert level zero, to keep Wales safe and open through the autumn and winter, given the rise in Coronavirus cases across the country.

From today (15th November) in Wales we will all need to show our vaccination status or recent negative lateral flow result to get into cinemas, concert halls, theatres, nightclubs and large events.

We have attached some static images highlighting this important update and also included a video below:

Mae Iechyd Cyhoeddus Cymru wedi cyhoeddi cyfres o ffeithluniau sy'n tynnu sylw at bwysigrwydd effaith newid yn yr hinsawdd ar iechyd a llesiant poblogaeth Cymru, ac i gefnogi cyrff cyhoeddus a busnesau i gymryd camau i fynd i'r afael ag unrhyw effeithiau.

Wedi'i lansio i gyd-fynd â Chynhadledd y Partïon 26 (COP26), mae'r ffeithluniau'n canolbwyntio ar y berthynas rhwng yr amgylchedd naturiol ac iechyd, y grwpiau poblogaeth yr effeithir arnynt a rhai o effeithiau allweddol iechyd a llesiant newid yn yr hinsawdd a'r grwpiau poblogaeth hynny y gellid effeithio arnynt.

Mae Iechyd Cyhoeddus Cymru wedi ymrwymo yn ei gynllun hirdymor i weithio gyda'n partneriaid i baratoi ar gyfer effaith ddisgwyliedig ac annisgwyl newid yn yr hinsawdd yng Nghymru ac ymateb i hyn. Fel rhan o’n cyfraniad, mae'r Uned Gymorth Asesu Effaith ar Iechyd (WHIASU) wedi bod yn gweithio gydag asiantaethau partner gan gynnwys Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru, Adfywio Cymru a Llywodraeth Cymru, ar Asesiad o'r Effaith ar Iechyd (HIA) Newid yn yr Hinsawdd yng Nghymru. Mae'r ffeithluniau'n rhan o'r gwaith hwn sy'n mynd rhagddo a'i nod yw sicrhau bod gan sefydliadau a Chyrff Cyhoeddus yng Nghymru y dystiolaeth a'r wybodaeth sydd eu hangen arnynt i gynllunio ar gyfer yr effeithiau iechyd a llesiant ar bobl a chymunedau a ddaw yn sgil newid yn yr hinsawdd ac ymateb hyn.

Gellir eu lawrlwytho yma ynghyd â'r cyfeiriadau a ddefnyddiwyd i greu'r ffeithluniau.

English Version

Public Health Wales has published a series of infographics highlighting the importance of climate change impacts on the health and wellbeing of the population of Wales, and to support public bodies and businesses to take action to address any impacts.

Launched to coincide with the Council of Parties 26 (COP26), the infographics focus on the relationships between the natural environment and health, the population groups affected and some of the key health and wellbeing impacts of climate change and those population groups who could be affected.

Public Health Wales (PHW) has committed in its long term plan to work with our partners to prepare for, and respond, to the expected and unexpected impact of climate change in Wales. As part of our contribution, the Wales Health Impact Assessment Support Unit (WHIASU) has been working with partner agencies including Natural Resources Wales, Renew Wales and Welsh Government, on a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) of Climate Change in Wales.

The infographics are part of this work which is ongoing and aims to ensure that organisations and Public Bodies in Wales have the evidence and information they need to plan for and respond to the health and wellbeing impacts on people and communities that climate change will bring.

The infographics can be downloaded here along with the references used to create the infographics.

Annual Ask Cardiff Survey,

The survey tries to capture residents views on many services that the council provides and also allows resident to leave any positive / negative feedback / comments / suggestions. 

The links to the survey are below:

English - https://wh1.snapsurveys.com/s.asp?k=163595852595

Welsh - https://wh1.snapsurveys.com/s.asp?k=163595914220

Cardiff residents will continue to receive monthly garden waste collections from September 7

Residents in Cardiff will continue to receive monthly garden waste collections from September 7th.  Residents are advised to check the council website - www.cardiff.gov.uk/gardenwaste - or the Cardiff Gov app, to find out when their garden waste is going to be collected in each area of the city.

As well as the monthly kerbside garden waste collections, garden waste can continue to be brought to our recycling centres at Lamby Way and Bessemer Close, by booking a slot through the council’s website - www.cardiff.gov.uk/recyclingcentres.

The additional provision for residents to bring their garden waste to the recycling centres will also continue until further notice, and includes:

  • Increasing the annual allowance for visits to 30 per household rather than 26
  • Increasing the available slots per day from 400 to 570 (up 42.5%);
  • Allowing households to make a booking, and visit on the same day where slots are available
  • Allowing households to visit up to 3 times per day (this is currently limited to 1) and:
  • Increasing our opening times, with last available slots for drop offs at 5.30pm.

These arrangements are in place for all those visiting the recycling centres by car and residents are advised that they need to bring their booking confirmation, along with proof that they are a Cardiff resident, such as a driving licence, and present it to staff on arrival at the site.

Given that Covid cases in Wales are once again on the rise we will continue to monitor the situation and will advise residents of any changes to collection schedules in due course.
