Welsh Gov issues direction for closure of Swansea cinema under Covid Act
The Welsh Government has issued a direction for the closure of Cinema & Co in Swansea on public health grounds.
Under the Coronavirus Act 2020, the Welsh Minsters have powers to take action against specific premises where they consider the premises to present a risk to public health.
To support Swansea Council and to protect public health, Welsh Ministers have issued a direction under the Act for the closure of Cinema & Co in Swansea.
Recently the Local Authority identified a series of breaches of the Coronavirus Regulations at the premises.
The premises was previously served with a notice requiring it to close due to the risk to public health.
As the owner has chosen not to comply with this legal requirement, Welsh Ministers have taken further enforcement action.
The Welsh Government has said it will not be commenting further on ongoing legal proceedings.
