Mandy Rayani, Director of Nursing, Quality and Patient Experience, said: “Last week we had to make the decision to extend measures at Glangwili Hospital in addition to Withybush Hospital to reduce the risk to our patients and staff and we thank people for their support and co-operation.

“We can all continue to take protective measures to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 to protect vulnerable people and the NHS.

“We strongly advise anyone in our locality who has the classic symptoms, or who suspects they may have COVID-19 to isolate and take an LFD test.

“If positive, we urge people to isolate – this will help you to rest and recover while protecting others from risk of transmission.”

If you have COVID-19 symptoms you can still book an LFD test in Wales for free, until 31 July, by visiting here….

You can also telephone 119 between the hours of 7am and 11pm.

Public health advice is to continue to isolate if you receive a positive result, either for 10 days, or following two consecutive negative LFD results from days 5 and 6.

Face too face contact without masks,air cleaners or proper ventilation guarantees infection of staff and other patients.Why would a Health Authority do that?
