Mae'r gweithredu gwirfoddol hwn a'r ysbryd cymunedol yn mynd i fod yn dyngedfennol yn y dyddiau, yr wythnosau a'r misoedd sydd o'n blaen.

Nawr mae'r Cyngor Sir a Chyngor Gwasanaethau Gwirfoddol Sir Ddinbych yn gweithio gyda'i gilydd i gydlynu ceisiadau.

Mae pobl sy'n ffit ac yn iach ac sy'n dymuno gwirfoddoli yn cael eu hannog i gofrestru ar www.dvsc.co.uk, drwy e-bost: covid19@dvsc.co.uk, neu ffonio Cyngor Gwasanaethau Gwirfoddol Sir Ddinbych yn uniongyrchol ar 01824 702441.

Youth clubs and centres

The county youth clubs and centres have been closed to the public and staff. The service will continue to offer support and virtual youth engagement opportunities in order to keep on touch with young people at this challenging time. Youth workers will be offering advice, activity, guidance and interaction – through virtual youth work and social media formats.

Once the guidance changes to enable groups to meet, centres, clubs and educational visits will resume.

Countryside Service:

Natural Resources Wales advice is to take care of yourself and others by following Public Health Wales and Government guidance.

Residents are asked to avoid unnecessary travel and to make any outdoor walk local to your area, do not get into your car to travel.

Walking trails remain open but those using them must exercise alone or with your own household only and, if encountering other people, maintain the social distancing rule.

Letter from Welsh Government to vulnerable people

The Council is aware that Welsh Government has written to vulnerable people across the UK, advising them of precautions they should take and to contact their local authority if they are worried or have support needs.

The Council is putting arrangements in place to deal with these calls. If people decide to call the Council’s Customer Service Centre, details will be taken and passed on to a team who will call them back to discuss their needs.

Where support is needed from the community, the team will be able to share details of what’s on offer in the local area and help people to make arrangements if necessary.

Where support is not available, details will be shared with Denbighshire Voluntary Services Council (DVSC) who will try to use volunteers to help meet needs in the community.

You could now see, for the foreseeable future, a vehicle displaying an out of date vehicle plate on the rear, with either a paper printed version of the updated plate displayed in the vehicle or have available, on inspection, a smartphone version. If you can’t see either of these please always ask the driver for proof of licence before you start your journey, they will be happy to show you. You can also check by looking at the updated register of drivers / vehicles on our website www.denbighshire.gov.uk/taxi-licences Any concerns please contact the Licensing team at licensing@denbighshire.gov.uk or 01824 706342.

Website & service updates

We will be publishing any changes/updates to Council services on the Coronavirus web page at the following link:

UK Government guidance for schools, colleges and local authorities

The UK Government has issued guidance for schools, colleges and local authorities on maintaining educational provision. The government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend. To find out which roles are covered visit here.

Note to managers regarding recording staff absence

Please can managers be reminded that when updating Trent, the correct reason for staff absence must be used i.e. self-isolating where a diagnosis hasn’t been confirmed. Some managers are using ‘Coronavirus’ for a reason - maybe because it appears one of the first reasons on the list – but it should be as stated above 'self-isolating'. Any queries regarding this, please contact HR Direct.

Caledfryn

The Caledfryn hot desking area is now to be used by Contact Centre team only until further notice.

Facebook group

We’re up to 1,000+ members now!! We’ve received lots of requests to be members of the closed Facebook group (DCC Staff CSDd - for Denbighshire staff only) – thanks to everyone who has joined and also those who have invited colleagues to join.

I’d like those hard to reach staff to join such as schools, catering, refuse collectors etc. as well. So, if you’re friends with these colleagues, please encourage them to join.

Here's a link to it: DCC Staff CSDd (facebook.com)

We’ll be accepting each one to ensure that they do work for DCC. If they don’t work for us, or they are ex-colleagues, some of which fall into this category, they are being declined. This is not mandatory – you don’t have to do it – but hopefully if you do, it will be a useful tool for sharing important information with staff, who otherwise don’t have access to e-mails.

For clarification, this way of sharing information is in addition to my Denbighshire Today bulletins – which I still expect Managers to relay the information to their staff who aren’t on e-mail.

If you have any queries about anything to do with the Coronavirus, in the first instance please contact your Line Manager, or alternatively HR direct.

Staff Survey

We have compiled a survey which we’re asking all staff to complete please. By completing this survey, you will help us to understand the impact of the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation on you and (where applicable) your family and/or any dependents in your care. It will also help us to plan our business continuity measures so that we can continue to provide our much-needed services to communities in Denbighshire as the situation continues to change. Thank you.

Arolwg Staff

Ffonio 111

Cofiwch, os ffoniwch 111 o fewn ardal BIPBC, efallai y codir tâl arnoch. Roeddwn i'n meddwl ei fod am ddim, ond dydy o ddim os ydych chi'n byw o fewn ardal BIPBC. Mae'n dweud: "Os ydych yn teimlo'n anhwylus ond nad yw'r broblem yn argyfwng meddygol, ffoniwch Galw Iechyd Cymru ar 0845 46 47 neu 111 os yw ar gael yn eich ardal (Nid yw yn Sir Ddinbych felly codir tâl arnoch) (ar gael ar hyn o bryd yn yr ardaloedd byrddau iechyd canlynol - Hywel Dda, Powys, Aneurin Bevan a Bae Abertawe - gan gynnwys Pen-y-bont ar Ogwr). Mae pob galwad yn cael ei chofnodi er diogelwch cleifion. Codir am alwadau i 0845 46 47 o linellau tir ar gyfradd leol ond gallant fod yn sylweddol uwch o ffôn symudol, gwiriwch y costau gyda'ch darparwr symudol. Mae galwadau i 111 am ddim. " Rydyn ni'n gwneud ymholiadau gyda BIPBC i weld a all hyn newid yn ystod yr argyfwng.

Fe wna i eich diweddaru yn fuan.

Neges gan y Prif Weithredwr

Mae'r sefyllfa o ran coronafeirws a chyngor i staff yn newid o ddydd i ddydd ac rydym yn rhagweld y bydd hyn yn parhau dros y dyddiau nesaf. Mae staff yn pryderu ac mae hynny’n ddealladwy. Mae'r uwch dîm arwain yn gweithio'n galed i gynllunio i barhau i ddarparu ein gwasanaethau o fewn y canllawiau a gyhoeddwyd gan y Llywodraeth. Er nad yw hyn yn bosibl i gyfran fawr o'n staff, disgwylir i'r staff hynny sy'n gweithio gartref yn awr wneud hynny nes y dywedir wrthynt yn wahanol.

Yn ogystal, dylai pawb ddilyn y canllawiau diweddaraf ar unigrwydd ac ymbellhau cymdeithasol fel y'u cyhoeddir yma:

Y prif newid yw'r cyngor ar gyfer grwpiau agored i niwed i ymbellhau lle bo'n bosibl fel a ganlyn:

  • Os ydych yn byw ar eich pen eich hunain ac mae gennych symptomau o salwch coronafeirws (COVID-19), pa bynnag mor ysgafn, arhoswch gartref am 7 diwrnod o'r adeg y dechreuodd eich symptomau. (Gweler yr adran ynysu uchod am ragor o wybodaeth)
  • Os ydych chi'n byw gydag eraill a bod gennych chi neu un ohonyn nhw symptomau coronafeirws, yna mae'n rhaid i bob aelod o'r cartref aros gartref a pheidio â gadael y tŷ am 14 diwrnod. Mae'r cyfnod o 14 diwrnod yn dechrau o'r diwrnod pan aeth y person cyntaf yn y tŷ yn sâl
  • Mae'n debygol y bydd pobl sy'n byw mewn cartref yn heintio ei gilydd neu'n cael eu heintio eisoes. Bydd aros gartref am 14 diwrnod yn lleihau'n fawr gyfanswm yr haint y gallai'r teulu ei drosglwyddo i eraill yn y gymuned
  • i unrhyw un ar yr aelwyd sy'n dechrau arddangos symptomau, mae angen iddynt aros gartref am 7 diwrnod o'r adeg yr ymddangosodd y symptomau, pa bynnag ddiwrnod yw hi o’r cyfnod ynysu gwreiddiol o 14 diwrnod. (Gweler yr adran ynysu sy'n dod i ben uchod am ragor o wybodaeth).

Os ydych yn perthyn i'r grŵp bregus a ddylai fod yn ymgymryd ag ymbellhau cymdeithasol, siaradwch â'ch rheolwr fel y gellir gwneud trefniadau i chi weithio gartref lle bo hynny'n bosibl neu beidio â gweithio os nad ydych yn gallu gweithio gartref.

Yn y cyfamser, mae'r uwch dîm arwain yn ystyried pa wasanaethau y mae'n rhaid eu darparu dros yr ychydig wythnosau nesaf, pa wasanaethau y mae'n bosibl y bydd angen eu darparu'n wahanol a pha wasanaethau fydd yn gorfod stopio. Rydym yn cyhoeddi arolwg staff i helpu rheolwyr i gynllunio gwasanaethau ac i alluogi staff i nodi sut y gallant helpu i ddarparu gwasanaethau hanfodol yn ystod yr wythnosau i ddod. Efallai y gallwch gefnogi'r broses o ddarparu gwasanaethau hyd yn oed wrth deimlo'n ynysig a chroesawn barodrwydd staff i wneud hynny yn y cyfnod eithriadol hwn.

Yr wyf yn cydnabod ei bod yn gyfnod anodd i bawb, yn enwedig y rhai sydd â phryderon am y modd y gallai effeithio'n arbennig arnynt hwy neu ar eu hanwyliaid. Byddwn yn annog pob un ohonoch i weithio gyda'ch rheolwyr i sicrhau ein bod yn blaenoriaethu'r hyn sy'n bwysig, yn rheoli ein lles ein hunain ac yn gofalu am y cydweithwyr a'r cyfeillion o'n cwmpas.

Byddaf mewn cysylltiad eto yn fuan.
