Pupils in the Reception Class at Ysgol Bro Pedr, Lampeter have been asked to self-isolate for 14 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 14 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. All parents have been contacted by the School and will also be supported by Ceredigion Contact Tracing Team.

Due to the impact of the positive case on staffing levels in the under 5 Unit, the Nursery will be closed for a fortnight. The pupils will not need to self-isolate as they are not a contact to the positive case. Therefore, the whole under 5 Unit will be closed until Monday, 7th December 2020.

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.

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