Pupils at Ysgol Gyfun Aberaeron will be taught remotely following further cases of COVID-19 in the school.

Contact Groups are already self-isolating because they are close links to a confirmed COVID-19 case at school. These pupils and staff must stay at home to reduce the potential spread of the virus to family, friends and the wider community.

Due to staffing challenges, the whole school will close and move to distance learning from Friday, 11 December 2020 until Friday, 18 December 2020.

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 https://gov.wales/apply-coronavirus-covid-19-test or by phoning 119.

No further details will be provided regarding this matter.
