With the country now in its third day of lockdown, people are adjusting the new normal, with streets, beaches and villages almost deserted. 

Everyone has been advised to stay at home, with a number of specific exceptions such as food shopping, obtaining medicines, or travelling to 'essential work'.

You're also allowed a brief exercise period each day.

The Echo travelled across East Cork to see the impact of the new restrictions on daily.
