Bangor Area Local Restrictions

New coronavirus restrictions have been introduced in the Bangor area following a rise in cases. 

The new measures came into force at 6pm on Saturday, 10 October.

The restrictions will mean that people living in the Bangor city area:

  • will need to avoid travelling in and out of Bangor without a valid reason to do so such as travelling for work for those who can’t work from home, travelling for education or to attend a health appointment;
  • will only be able to meet people they don’t live with outdoors. They will not be able to form, or be a part of, extended households (sometimes referred to as a “bubble”).
