Carmarthenshire's test, track and trace system is well underway.

The service to track the virus is set to give extra protection to communities.

Hywel Dda University Health Board along with Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion county councils are working together to help local communities continue to live and work alongside the virus whilst containing its spread.

Anyone who has been in contact with someone with confirmed Covid-19 may be contacted as part of this service and asked to self-isolate for up to 14 days, and to request a test if they show any symptoms of the virus. A contact advisor will get in touch with the individual to provide advice and support.

Chair of Hywel Dda University Health Board Maria Battle, Leader of Carmarthenshire County Council Emlyn Dole, Leader of Ceredigion County Council Ellen ap Gwynn and Leader of Pembrokeshire County Council David Simpson said in a joint statement: “Thank you to all our communities who are working so hard to protect and support each other.

“As we continue to rise to the challenge that Covid19 presents us all, we are urging everyone to remain vigilant and not to relax the measures already in place, such as maintaining social distancing and hand hygiene, to help us live and work alongside the virus whilst containing its spread.

“Each of us has an important role to play in making sure we continue to protect our local communities and keep Hywel Dda safe.”
