Frequently Asked Questions

Can I go outside at all during the lockdown?

Yes, but only if it’s for one of the following four reasons:

  • Shopping for basic necessities such as food. People should use delivery services where they can.
  • One form of exercise a day (this includes walking your dog, but please stay as far away from other people and their pets as possible).
  • If you have a genuine medical need or are caring for a vulnerable person (e.g picking up medicine for an elderly neighbour)
  • Travelling to and from work, only if absolutely necessary.

These measures must be followed by everyone. Separate advice is available for individuals or households who are isolating, and for the most vulnerable who need to be shielded

Full details on these new measures can be found at

Am I allowed to drive somewhere to get my exercise?

The current guidelines mean only essential travel is permitted. This means a day down the beach is not appropriate right now, no matter how sunny it is. We would urge people to make the most of nearby areas instead, and to avoid going outside during busy periods. Running or cycling as part of a group is not permitted, and neither is meeting up with friends for non-contact sports such as golf or skateboarding.

Can I take my car or motorbike out and meet up with friends?

No, not for the next few weeks at least.The government has stopped all public gatherings of more than two people, with only these exceptions:

  • Where the gathering is of a group of people who live together - this means that a parent can, for example, take their children to the shops if there is no option to leave them at home.
  • Where the gathering is essential for work purposes - but workers should try to minimise all meetings and other gatherings in the workplace.

All social events, including weddings, baptisms and other religious ceremonies, have also been stopped for the meantime. This excludes funerals, which can be attended by immediate family.

Full details on these new measures can be found at


My partner and I share custody of our children. We are all practicing social distancing and no-one has symptoms. Am I allowed to take them to see my partner?

According to current guidelines, children under 18 can be moved between two households when parents live separately.

My MOT has expired, can I arrange it to be tested?

Please see the latest advice in relation to MOT on the website:


Can I still contact the police?

Yes. The safety and welfare of local communities remains our top priority.

Members of the public should continue to call 999 in an emergency where a crime is in progress or there is a threat to life. We are urging members of the public to use their services wisely and help keep the 999 line free for emergencies only.

We are currently experiencing a high call demand to both our 999 and 101 numbers. We have seen a significant increase in the amount of calls received over the last week, in particular calls regarding matters unrelated to police and non-urgent matters being reported via 999.

Please consider contacting us via email or live web chat for non-urgent enquiries. For advice around COVID-19 and what it means for you, please refer to the UK Government, Welsh Government and Public Health Wales websites for information and guidance.


What do I do if I think I have the virus?

Members of the public should not call police to report cases of COVID-19 coronavirus. If you think you have the virus you should use the NHS Symptom Checker or call the NHS on 111.
