In a tweet this evening, the Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan said there have been more than 800 cases confirmed in Limerick in the past two weeks,

He said the majority of those cases were the result of indoor gatherings.

“It is extremely important that everyone in the Limerick region continues to adhere to the public health advice,” he said.

“Please avoid crowds, wear a mask where appropriate, wash your hands, maintain your social distance, socialise outdoors and, most importantly, if you display any symptoms of COVID-19 or suspect you are a close contact of a confirmed case then attend a test centre for a free test.”
