August Bank Holiday is nearly here and it looks like it’s going to be sunny and warm for the long weekend ahead. Over the last couple of weeks, there has been a dramatic increase in covid cases in Ceredigion, in particular in coastal areas.
The current levels show the number of cases at 255.9 per 100,000 of the population, with Cardigan at 304.1 per 100,000; New Quay and Penbryn at 395.6 and Aberystwyth South at 313.8. All areas of Ceredigion are above 200 per 100,000 population which is a concern and it shows that the virus is spreading quickly within the community, in particular amongst those between the ages of 10 and 29 years old.
The number of cases is expected to increase further over the coming days and our coastal towns will inevitably be busier than normal and places will get crowded. So, if you’re partying at home or going ‘out out’, do the best you can to limit the chance of catching covid by:
Washing your hands regularly.
Wear a face mask, especially in crowded places, on public transport or in shops.
Keep your distance. Although
