Latest virus news

Public Health Wales, Conwy County Borough Council and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board are urging people living in the Llandudno Junction, Llandudno and Penrhyn Bay areas of North Wales to be alert for Coronavirus symptoms and to take a test as soon as possible even if they have no symptoms.

The call comes after a further 35 confirmed or presumptive cases of the variant of concern first identified in India, VOC-21APR-02, were found in the area over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Local people are being urged to come forward for a test.

For residents without symptoms - LFD tests are available for collection from the Mobile Test Unit at Ysgol Awel y Mynydd Sarn Mynach, Llandudno Junction, Conwy, LL31 9RZ. This is a walk in/drive through centre, no appointment is necessary and is open from 0800 – 2000 (closed between 1300-1400).

Anyone with symptoms should go to Conwy Business Centre, Junction Way, Llandudno Junction, LL31 9XX for a PCR test. This is a walk in/drive through centre, no appointment is necessary and is open from 0800 – 2000 (closed between 1300-1400).

Residents can protect themselves and others from Coronavirus by remaining at least two metres away from everyone else, washing their hands regularly, and by wearing a face covering where required. They should take up the vaccine when offered, and self-isolate and get a test if they or anyone in their household develop symptoms.

Richard Firth, Consultant in Health Protection for Public Health Wales, and Chair of the multi-agency Incident Management Team, said: “This is a fast-moving situation. Please be vigilant for the symptoms of Coronavirus, and get a test now. The emergence of so many new cases of this transmissible new variant of Coronavirus in the Llandudno Junction, Llandudno and Penrhyn Bay areas is a reminder that we should not become complacent, even as rates of the virus across Wales remain low.

“Speed is of the essence. The sooner we act, the better, so please, come forward for testing as soon as you can. The more people with symptoms who come forward, the more cases we will find. More people can then be referred into the Test, Trace, Protect programme, allowing contact tracers to take action to put a stop to the spread of this variant in the area.”

“If you are contacted by contact tracers, please help to protect your community by being honest with them about your movements and complying with their instructions.

“I also urge anyone aged 39 years and under to get a vaccine as soon as possible. Besti Cadwaladr University Health Board is delivering vaccination sessions for people aged 39 and under today (Wednesday) and Thursday from 9am until 7.30pm at the Mass Vaccination Centre at Venue Cymru, Llandudno.”
