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, please 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.

By following these good practices we can all do our bit to keep Ceredigion safe.
