There have been a number of rumours circulating in the village over the last few days concerning reports of an outbreak of Covid 19 at Bardsey Sports Club. Bardsey Parish Council, together with the Sports Club Committee, would like to clarify the current situation as follows:

Following a cricket match at the Sports Club on Saturday 22nd August, a small number of those associated with the match have tested positive for Covid 19. None of these people have needed hospital treatment, and indeed two of them have showed no symptoms at all.

Test and trace procedures were activated as soon as the first positive results became known, and as a result several more people are now in voluntary self-isolation. The club house was closed temporarily for deep cleaning. Deep cleaning has been arranged for early next week, and the club house will be reopened as soon as it is safe to do so.

Due to the prompt implementation of appropriate measures, it is not believed that there is a wider threat to the community. Further updates will follow as soon as there is news to report.
