Concerns have been raised over a cluster of Covid-19 cases that have been identified in the Llanarth and New Quay area.

Ceredigion County Council says that a cluster of coronavirus cases have been identified in and around New Quay and Llanarth, which is causing concern.

A council spokesperson said: “Over the last few days, a number of cases have been identified in the area which is causing concern, and anyone with symptoms is encouraged to take a test.

“A multi-agency incident management team is monitoring the situation. “Additional testing has been made available in the area and people can book a test through the UK portal.”

It is advised that you get your test within five days if you have any of the following symptoms:

• A new continuous cough

• A high temperature

• Loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

To help identify hidden Covid-19 cases in our communities as new variants of the virus emerge, Hywel Dda University Health Board is also encouraging you to have a test if you have any of the following symptoms and they are new, persistent and/or unusual for you:

• Mild summer cold symptoms, including sore throat, runny nose, headache.

• Flu-like symptoms, including myalgia (muscle ache or pain); excessive tiredness; persistent headache; runny nose or blocked nose; persistent sneezing; sore throat and/or hoarseness, shortness of breath or wheezing; nausea; vomiting; or diarrhoea .

• Generally feeling unwell and a history of being in contact with a known Covid-19 case.

• Any new or change in symptoms following a previous negative test.

You must self-isolate immediately for 10 days if you have any of the above symptoms and book a PCR test.

Even if you’ve been double-vaccinated, remember to wash your hands regularly, wear a face mask where needed and keep a social distance from others in order to keep everyone safe.
