CMO Reminds Public To Behave Responsibly As We Exit Level 5
Commenting on this evening's figures, Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan reminded people to behave sensibly as we exit Level 5.
“It is up to every person, individually, to remain vigilant to the spread of this disease, to assess the risk that is involved in any social activity."
He asked people to keep public health "at the centre of our minds."
I encourage every individual to follow public health advice.
You can manage the risk of picking up this infection. Be aware of the symptoms, limit your social contacts, wear a face covering and stay away from crowded places especially indoors.
— Dr Tony Holohan (@CMOIreland) November 30, 2020
Dr Holohan also reiterated visiting guidelines.
"Do not have visitors to our homes, outside of any necessary visitors in a support bubble, until the 18th of December."
