Positive COVID-19 cases have been confirmed at Min y Mor Residential Care Home, Aberaeron. Several members of staff and residents have 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 contain the virus within the Home and to provide support to the staff and residents at the Home.

The residents’ families have all been contacted by the Home and staff will provide regular updates to all families over the coming days and weeks.

Looking after our care home residents is of paramount importance to Ceredigion County Council. 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. 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.

Arrangements have been made for family, friends and well-wishers to leave gifts for Ceredigion’s care home residents. People who wish to send gifts can drop parcels off for residents in Local Authority Residential Care Homes at the following locations between Friday 11.12.2020 and Saturday 19.12.2020:

People are reminded that no home cooked items or flowers/plants can be accepted. Remember also to put the name of the resident, the name of the home and who it’s from with a contact number on your parcel.

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 www.ceredigion.gov.uk/coronavirus
