In a statement, Dr Ronan Glynn stressed the need for social contacts to be reduced. “As we start into this new week, I am asking every household across the country to sit together this evening and make a plan to reduce the number of people you meet this week. We have absolutely no room for complacency. If every person, family, workplace and organisation does not play their part the situation will continue to deteriorate”.

“For people who live in Donegal and Dublin remember Government advice is to work from home unless it is essential to attend in person. For people living in these and all other counties, assume that COVID-19 is circulating in your community and act accordingly,” the Acting Chief Medical Officer stated.
