“All it would take for COVID-19 to regain a foothold in our communities is complacency,” warned Dr. Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer.
“As the pandemic accelerates around the world, we must remain vigilant here in Ireland.”
“Every day, in our individual actions, we have the power to limit the spread of this virus.”
The government’s priority going forward is on the safe reopening of schools and the resumption of non-Covid related healthcare services he added.
“Every time we stay 2 metres apart, wash our hands, practice good respiratory etiquette and wear a face covering, we are working towards those shared goals together.”
