Residential Care Homes - VISITS SUSPENDED.

Staff in each Care Home across Ceredigion are tested for COVID-19 every fortnight, in line with government guidelines and positive cases have been confirmed in two independent Care Homes in the Aberystwyth area. Currently no residents have tested positive but they will continue to be closely monitored.

We understand how difficult this may be to relatives and residents, and they will continue to be able to communicate via telephone and video conferencing/skype calls. We are extremely grateful for the co-operation shown by staff, care home residents and members of the public as we take every step to keep Ceredigion’s residents safe and well. We are also grateful for the cooperation of the private care homes who have also temporarily suspended all visits.
