Museums and tourism facilities owned by Cork County Council will not be opening their doors today, in light of the move to Level 3 of Ireland’s Plan for Living with Covid-19 plan.
The move is one of a number of changes to Cork County Council’s services, which have come into effect this morning.
The local authority said it will endeavour to maintain continuity of service in so far as is practical and safe for our staff and members of the public in line with the recommendations of Government.
It is advising that playgrounds, Multi-Use Games Areas and public toilets remain open, as do council offices.
However, libraries have today returned to a “click and collect” system.
Swimming pools will remain open for individual use only.
The local authority has advised that planning services, roads services, housing services and civic amenity sites all continue to operate.
Over 120 Council services can be accessed online at www.YourCouncil.ie and Cork County Council is asking members of the public to avail of these services in the interests of public health.
Cork County Council is also reminding people that Community Support Programme will continue to be available to members of the public required to isolate or cocoon.
This service provides non-emergency assistance by way of collection and delivery of food, non-emergency health needs and social supports and has handled more than 4,152 since its establishment last March.
The Community Support Programme can be contacted for free on 1800 805 819, from 9am to 5pm, seven days a week.
Those calling from outside of Ireland seeking assistance for a relative of friend in Cork County should call +353 21 4285517.
The Service is also contactable by email at firstname.lastname@example.org by text to (085) 8709010.
