The Offices of the Law Library on Washington Street have re-opened today following a deep clean of the premises. The building which houses the legal facility was closed after a case of COVID-19 was reported in an individual in the building.
Last night, communication was circulated to members which said the building was closed with immediate effect to facilitate the deep-clean.
A spokesperson for the Law Library confirmed this afternoon that the building has now re-opened and said that it had taken a number of steps to protect its members and staff at its facility.
“The Law Library in Washington Street underwent a deep clean this morning, following a reported case. Our thoughts are with individual concerned, their family and colleagues. The building is now reopened having been approved by the HSE.
“The health and safety of our members and staff in the Law Library is of paramount concern, and we have taken steps in respect of hygiene, events and awareness raising.
"We shall take all necessary and prudent steps, as directed to by public health authorities,” the spokesperson said.
They added that high-level meetings are ongoing with the Courts Service. “We will continue to monitor, and keep our members informed as matters develop,” the spokesperson said.
