What to do if you feel unwell.
I have given this a lot of thought and have sought advice too. Government guidelines are however quite clear.
Below is a list of things which must happen if anyone staying at Old Oak Barn begin to feel unwell and especially if anyone shows a high temperature, develops a cough or dry throat or begins to lose their sense of smell or taste.
Firstly – you must tell me.
Secondly – you must self isolate and request a test. Luckily we are very near the testing centre near Carmarthen. This can be done online or by phoning 191. At this point you should also consider returning home. IF you are confirmed to have Covid19 it is a requirement to return home immediately provided you can drive safely or someone else can drive. The local hospital will of course see all emergencies but the services in Wales are not in themselves built nor designed to cope with a big influx of temporary holidaymakers.
There is more guidance regarding what needs to be done – guests will be not be eligible for a refund if their stay is cut short because they return home.
Our visitors who have already booked are being kept informed about the policies and changes we have had to make here but by posting this short blog today we hope the question of what is expected if you feel unwell is clear.
As part of recent preparations here we want to reassure you that we are doing all we can this end to ensure safety of everyone is paramount. This last week final risk assessments have been written and new cleaning arrangements put in place. However, in addition the boiler has been serviced, all electrical appliances PAT tested, outside patio pressure washed, carpets shampooed, curtains washed, non essential items removed and new laminated information sheets rewritten. Please ask if there are any questions. Diolch!
