You can no longer visit friends or family in hospitals in Powys, it has been announced this afternoon.

The Powys Teaching Health Board said the move had been made "to reduce the risk of infection".

Exceptions will be at the discretion of the ward sister, charge nurse or midwife, and will only be given if you are involved in end of life care or are a single birth partner.

The health board said: "We thank you all for supporting us to keep you and your loved ones as safe as possible in these difficult times."
