Pupils in one Contact Group at Ysgol Gyfun Penweddig, Aberystwyth have been asked to self-isolate for 10 days following the confirmation of a COVID-19 case at the school.

All confirmed contacts of the positive case must remain at home for 10 days to reduce the possible spread of the virus to family, friends and the wider community. As the School site is closed until the end of the term, the pupils will continue to be taught remotely for this period.

Due to the strong procedures that have been put in place in the school, only a small number of pupils are being asked to self-isolate. The parents of all these pupils have been contacted by the School.

The Council urges all parents to refer their children for a test if they develop any of the symptoms, which are:

  • a high temperature
  • a new continuous cough
  • a loss or change to sense of smell or taste.

Parents should also be aware of other symptoms early on, such as headaches, tiredness and general aches and pains usually associated with the flu.

You can apply for a test online  or by phoning 119.
