Welsh Government Coronavirus Regulations

 

The Welsh Government is responsible for the public health response to the coronavirus in Wales.

 

It is doing this by exercising its legal powers to take measures to prevent or slow the spread of coronavirus, and by supporting NHS Wales.

 

New rules are now in force, which mean you must stay at home to save lives and protect the NHS. These rules may differ to other parts of the UK, so it is important you understand them.

 

 

Stay at home. Save lives. Protect the NHS.

 

 

You can:

  • Go out for exercise. Please see the exercise guidance for more information.
  • Travel to work, provided your place of work remains open and you cannot work from home.
  • Go out to buy food, medicines, or other supplies, but you should stay at least 2m away from other people. Please see the business closures guidance for more information.  Go out to your garden, yard, garage or shed.
  • Visit your GP or local health services, including the dentist.
  • Provide care or help to a vulnerable person. This includes getting food and medicines for them.
  • Help the NHS by donating blood.
  • Leave your house to avoid injury or illness or to escape the risk of harm.
  • Leave your house to attend a funeral if you are responsible for organising the funeral, if you are invited by the organiser, or if you are the carer of any person attending the funeral.

 

You must not:

  • Gather in a group of more than 2 people in a public place, unless you live with them, or they are your carer.
  • Travel or be outside without a reasonable excuse. A reasonable excuse includes the examples listed above.

Rheoliadau Coronafirws Llywodraeth Cymru

 

Llywodraeth Cymru sy’n gyfrifol am yr agwedd iechyd cyhoeddus ar yr ymateb i’r coronafeirws yng Nghymru.

 

Mae’n gwneud hynny drwy arfer ei phwerau cyfreithiol i roi mesurau ar waith i atal y coronafeirws rhag lledaenu, neu i arafu hynny, a thrwy gefnogi GIG Cymru.

 

Mae rheolau newydd mewn grym erbyn hyn, sy'n golygu bod yn rhaid ichi aros gartref, er mwyn achub bywydau a diogelu'r Gwasanaeth Iechyd Gwladol (y GIG). Mae’n bosibl bod y rheolau hyn yn wahanol i’r rheolau mewn rhannau eraill o’r DU, felly mae’n bwysig eich bod yn eu deall.

 

 

Aros gartref. Diogelu’r GIG. Achub bywydau.

 

 

Cewch wneud y canlynol:

  • Mynd allan i wneud ymarfer corff. Mae rhagor o wybodaeth yn y canllawiau ar ymarfer corff.
  • Teithio i’r gwaith, cyhyd â bod eich gweithle’n dal yn agored ac nad ydych yn gallu  gweithio gartref.
  • Mynd allan i brynu bwyd, moddion, neu nwyddau eraill, ond mae'n rhaid ichi gadw o leiaf 2 fetr rhyngoch chi a phobl eraill. Mae rhagor o wybodaeth yn y canllawiau ar gau busnesau.
  • Mynd allan i’ch gardd, iard, garej neu sied.
  • Mynd i weld eich meddyg teulu neu ddefnyddio gwasanaethau iechyd lleol, gan gynnwys y deintydd.
  • Rhoi gofal neu gymorth i berson sy'n agored i niwed. Mae hyn yn cynnwys mynd i ’nôl bwyd a moddion iddynt.
  • Helpu'r Gwasanaeth Iechyd drwy roi gwaed.
  • Gadael eich tŷ i osgoi anaf neu salwch neu i ddianc rhag perygl o niwed.
  • Gadael eich tŷ i fynd i angladd os chi sy’n gyfrifol am drefnu’r angladd, os ydych yn cael gwahoddiad gan y sawl sy’n ei drefnu, neu os ydych yn gofalu am unrhyw un sy’n mynd i’r angladd.

 

Peidiwch â gwneud y canlynol:

  • Ymgynnull mewn grŵp o fwy na dau o bobl mewn man cyhoeddus, oni bai eich bod yn byw gyda nhw, neu oni bai mai nhw yw’ch gofalwyr.
  • Teithio, neu fod y tu allan, heb esgus rhesymol. Mae esgus rhesymol yn cynnwys yr enghreifftiau a roddir uchod.

Letter to Parents

SOME PARENTS HAVE BEEN WORRIED ABOUT THE DATES ON THE LATEST NEWS ITEMS. 

LATEST NEWS WORKS ON THE DAY AN EVENT HAPPENS.  (EG SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHS ARE ON 27TH APRIL). THE LATEST DATES GO TO THE TOP OF THE LIST OF EVENTS. 

AS THE SCHOOL WANT ALL PARENTS TO SEE UPDATES ABOUT THE VIRUS, DATES HAVE BEEN SET TO 'PUSH' THIS INFORMATION TO THE TOP OF THE LIST  (EG THE DATE FOR THIS POST - AUGUST) AND ENSURE IT IS SEEN. PLEASE  READ THE DETAILS AND DATES CONTAINED  IN EACH  POST

Coronavirus Update

 

PARENT UPDATE

At St Josephs’ we are obviously monitoring the Covid-19 situation very closely.

We are following all advice from Public Health Wales and Cardiff Council which is being updated daily.

 

TO ENSURE THAT COMMUNICATION METHODS WITH ALL PARENTS ARE UP TO DATE AND IN PLACE COULD YOU PLEASE CHECK THAT THE SCHOOL HAS YOUR CORRECT CONTACT DETAILS.

 

ANY UPDATES WILL BE POSTED ON OUR WEBSITE AND MESSAGES WILL BE SENT THROUGH THE SCHOOL APP.

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

 

COVID-19 is a new illness that is caused by a virus called coronavirus.  Parents and carers are naturally worried about this new illness and the implications for their children and families.  These fears have been heightened by speculation and false information shared on some social media platforms.  In writing this statement, I hope to provide reassurance to you.

 

PREVENTING INFECTION

School staff are alert to the risk of infection and are taking measures to help keep children healthy.  At this time, these measures include encouraging children to wash their hands regularly and to cough or sneeze into tissues, disposing of them in a bin thereafter.  All children were reminded of this again at a whole School Assembly yesterday.  

 

The latest posters have been placed around the school for staff, children, parents and visitors. I would encourage parents and carers to reinforce the guidelines of the poster at home and encourage children to wash their hands on leaving for school and on return from school.  

All toilets in the school have soap dispensers for use.  These are checked each day to ensure they are functioning properly.  A significant order for hand sanitiser was placed by the school when Local Authority guidelines were issued, however, due to high demand, we are still awaiting delivery.

 

SCHOOL CLOSURE

There are currently no plans to close the school. However, staff remain alert to the possibility of school closure in the future.  We are currently formulating plans to mitigate the impact of school closure on the continuity of learning for children.  This work will continue behind the scenes as the situation across Cardiff and Wales remains under review.  There is no reason at this stage to keep your child at home.

 

ADVICE FOR STUDENTS

DO

  • wash your hands with soap and water often - do this for at least 20 seconds whilst singing "Happy Birthday" TWICE
  • cover you mouth and nose with a tissue (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow
  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands again afterwards

DO NOT

  • do not touch our eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

 

ADVICE FOR PARENTS

Cancellation of all after school clubs

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

In light of the current outbreak of COVID-19 and in consultation with the Chair of Governors for the school, I have taken the decision to review non-essential school events such as after school clubs to limit risk to the school community including those who may be more vulnerable.

 

Although after school clubs are an integral part of the school calendar I feel that it is sensible to postpone all after school clubs until further notice. I am sure you will support the school in this matter,.

 

Cofion cynnes,

Alex Riordan

Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus Update 1

Dear Parents/Carers,

If you have not been made aware - general and education specific advice has been provided and can be found by accessing the following links:

 

https://gov.wales/guidance-educational-settings-about-covid-19.

https://phw.nhs.wales/news/public-health-wales-statement-on-novel-coronavirus-outbreak-in-china/  Public Health Wales update this information daily.

 

I have attached a Public Health Wales poster we are using in school – communicating the fundamental control measures that we are following that are needed to minimise onward transmission. It is particularly important to remind children (especially the younger ones) of the importance of good hand washing with liquid soap and water. 

If you have specific queries regarding self-isolation and exclusion- please contact NHS Direct Wales (contact details on poster above).

 

Cofion Cynnes,
