Further positive COVID-19 cases have been confirmed at Min y Mor Residential Care Home, Aberaeron. Several members of staff and all residents have now tested positive. All residents continue to be closely monitored.

Ceredigion County Council is working closely with Hywel Dda University Health Board and Public Health Wales to provide support to the staff and residents at the Home.

The residents’ families have all been contacted by the Home and staff are providing regular updates to all families.

This is a very challenging situation for the Home and we are grateful to the community for its support. However, we ask that friends of residents do not telephone the Home so that we can keep the telephone line free for families and health professionals to be able to make contact.

Looking after our care home residents is of paramount importance to Ceredigion County Council. We appreciate that this is a difficult time of year when we all want to see our loved ones. However, visits to Care Homes in Ceredigion remain suspended and residents are being supported to keep in touch with family and friends via telephone and video conferencing / skype calls. Several gifts have been received over recent days at the drop off centres and these will be given to residents on Christmas Day.

We are extremely grateful for the co-operation shown by staff, care home residents, their families and members of the public as we take every step to keep Ceredigion’s residents safe and well.

It’s as important as ever that we all keep a safe distance, wash our hands regularly and wear a face covering when it’s not possible to keep a social distance. All those who develop any of the symptoms of COVID-19 must follow the self-isolation guidelines and arrange a test as soon as possible, and the only time they should leave their homes is in order to be tested.

More information and advice on coronavirus is available on the Council’s website.

Thank you for staying apart to play your part. Together we can keep Ceredigion safe.
