Following the Welsh Government announcement about the local restrictions to be imposed in Rhondda Cynon Taf from 6pm on Thursday 17th September due to the number of rising coronavirus cases, we will continue to closely follow advice and keep people updated about our services should they be impacted.

Details of the local restrictions in place can be found on Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s website here.

Coronavirus symptoms

If you have symptoms of coronavirus, you must self-isolate immediately and get a test. Symptoms include:

  • A new continuous cough
  • High temperature
  • Loss of taste and / or smell

If you just feel slightly ‘under the weather’ with mild symptoms, please still arrange a test.

For people living in Rhondda Cynon Taff, the test centre for people experiencing symptoms is at The Pavilions, Clydach Vale, CF40 2XX.

A temporary testing centre has also been set up at Abercynon Leisure Centre and will operate from Thursday, September 17th – Wednesday September 23rd, 9am to 5pm.

It is a walk-through test centre and you must book in advance here.

If you receive a positive test result, it is important that you self-isolate and remain at home for at least 10 days.

Repairs, maintenance and home safety checks

We will continue to carry out emergency, urgent and routine repairs with protection in place for tenants, partners and the Celtic Horizons team.

Ahead of an appointment, we will call you to check you are symptom free and check our operative is symptom free. Our operative will wear PPE, wash their hands before and after all appointments, and remove all gloves and tools when finished.

Please help us by staying in a separate room while the operative works and by staying 2m apart at all times. When the operative arrives, open the door, stand back and don’t shake their hand.

Please also ventilate the working area by opening windows if possible.
