Covid-19 Message

COVID-19 (coronavirus)

We’ve been asked by the Department of Community and Rural Development to help them make sure that everyone receives up to date information during this current COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

The general public is asked to follow the advice given in the links below and keep informed of this outbreak:

You can find further information at:

It is recommended that all people should be encouraged to keep a daily diary of the all the places and people you have been in physical contact with.

If this is taken on board it would reduce the workload of those working tirelessly with the job of Contact Tracing in the weeks ahead.

It would make a massive difference in identifying people who need to be contacted.
