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

The Contact Group has been asked to self-isolate due to being close contacts of a confirmed COVID-19 case at the school. These pupils and staff must remain at home for 10 days to reduce the possible spread of the virus to family, friends and the wider community.

Due to the strong procedures that have been put in place in the school, only one Contact Group is being asked to self-isolate. However, as a precautionary measure, Years 3 and 4 will be asked to stay at home tomorrow. Distance learning will be provided for Years 3 and 4 from Monday, 14 December and to the rest of the pupils from Tuesday, 15 December.

All parents 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.
