Covid-19 Warn and Inform Message over Castle Bingo in Neath

NEATH PORT TALBOT COUNCIL’S Test, Trace, Protect (TTP) Service wants people to be aware a person confirmed to have had Covid-19 visited Castle Bingo in Neath (evening session) on Monday, May 17th.

Those who may have visited the premises at that time should be mindful of the symptoms of Covid-19.
If they suspect they have symptoms (the classic coronavirus symptoms are loss of smell or taste, a new and continuous cough and/or a high temperature) they should get a test.
Anyone with coronavirus symptoms (however mild) must remain at home both before and after having a test until such time as they have received a negative test result. Their household members must also stay at home in a similar manner as doing this will help prevent the spread of the virus to family, friends, colleagues and the wider community and will also help protect the NHS.
You can now go for a free coronavirus test if you have a wider range of symptoms. These are:
Flu-like symptoms including any or all of: 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;
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
Any symptom which is new, persistent and/or unusual for them
If you take a test because of these other wider symptoms you are not required to isolate while waiting for your result. This includes children and school pupils who can continue to attend schools and childcare settings while they await a test result. However, children and adults with diarrhoea and or vomiting should remain off work or school and not attend childcare settings until they are symptom free for 48 hours even if their Covid-19 test is negative.
If you get a positive Covid-19 result, you and your household must then isolate. Households must also isolate if anyone develops any of the 3 classic Covid-19 symptoms while waiting for a test result taken on wider symptoms to come back.
