Dr Ronan Glynn issued a renewed appeal to the public to follow health advice including physical distancing, hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette, the avoidance of large crowds and wearing a face covering where necessary. “COVID-19 is extremely infectious. It wants to spread, but it needs people to come into contact with each other to do so.

“It now depends on the actions we take as individuals, as to whether this virus gets an opportunity to spread through our communities. Continue to follow the public health advice, know the risks, know the symptoms and stay safe,” the Acting Chief Medical Officer stated.
