A Group of Year 8 pupils at Ysgol Gyfun Penglais, Aberystwyth have been asked to self-isolate for 14 days following the confirmation of a COVID-19 case at the school.
All confirmed contacts of the positive case must remain at home for 14 days to reduce the possible spread of the virus to family, friends and the wider community. The pupils will 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 and will also be supported by Ceredigion Contact Tracing Team.
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 on https://gov.wales/apply-coronavirus-covid-19-test or by phoning 119.
No further details will be provided regarding this matter.
