This evening Dr. Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health said it is vital for everyone with a recent diagnosis to self-isolate for the full 10 days "to protect the people they live with, the people they love and people in their communities from this highly infectious disease.

"Self-isolate means stay at home, stay in your room as much as possible, stay away from other people, including those in your household.

“If you live with someone who has Covod-19 or you have been told that you are a close contact, you must restrict your movements for a full 14 days. Stay at home - don’t go to work, don’t go to school,” he said.

“I appeal to everyone to behave as though you are a close contact. Stay at home, other than for essential reasons. Now is the time to use our reserves of energy and dig deep in our efforts to follow the public health advice – keep your distance, wash your hands and wear a face covering. Play your part to break the chains of transmission across families, neighbours and communities.”
