Staff at St Mary’s Senior Citizens, supported by the HSE Community Work Department North Lee volunteers and Community Employment staff distributed hand sanitizers and face masks to their members.

Chairperson of St Mary’s Breda Mc Namara stated that they want to make sure their members are safe over Christmas.

“As we approach Christmas, it’s more important than ever that we all limit the number of contacts we have with others. Not only does this keep ourselves and others safe, but it also reduces the possibility that we will be a close contact of someone who has Covid-19, and needs to restrict our movements for Christmas.” 

 Relatives visiting granny or granda on Christmas Day should continue to 

  • maintain physical distancing of two metres;
  • wear a mask or face covering where appropriate;
  • wash hands often 
  •  observe cough and sneeze etiquette.
