WREXHAM Council has shared advice to workers who have to car-share to get to their jobs.

Earlier this week, workers were given renewed advice after clusters of cases were linked to car-sharing.

Government guidance says car-sharing should be avoided. Sitting in a confined space with someone from another household is a bad idea, and you could easily catch or spread the virus.

A Wrexham Council spokesperson said: "You might end up having to isolate, and you could become seriously ill.

"So try to avoid it at all costs. If you can’t work from home, try to drive to work alone –or walk or cycle and reap the benefits of fresh air and exercise.

If you do have to car-share, here are some tips:

  • Keep car windows open
  • Wear a mask
  • Try not to touch surfaces that others touch – keep door handles and steering wheels clean
  • If you do come within two metres of each other, keep it to the minimum time possible, avoid contact and try to face away from each other
