Yesterday, Transport for Wales issued an apology for cancellations to numerous rail services as Covid-19 notifications forced a number of staff to self-isolate.

Montgomery Welsh Assembly Member, Russell George MS has called on both the Welsh and UK Government to work together to implement changes to isolation rules and the app.

He said: “We have made great strides with our vaccination programme and the restoration of many freedoms, but our vital public services and economic recovery could be severely hampered by a potential ‘ping-demic’.

“The sensitivity of the NHS app and isolation rules across the UK need an immediate review as it is somewhat bizarre double-vaccinated individuals, some who’ve also already had Covid, are being forced to isolate.

“The 10-day self-isolation period for people who have received both jabs needs to come to an end, and a system implemented for those not yet fully vaccinated.

“In Wales, this will require a joined-up approach and I implore both the Welsh and UK Governments to work together immediately so changes can be implemented with pace so our recovery does not ground to a halt.”
