To protect yourself and others from coronavirus (COVID-19), think about how the virus is spread. Coronavirus is spread in sneeze or cough droplets. To infect you, it has to get from an infected person’s nose or mouth into your eyes, nose or mouth. This can be direct or indirect (on hands, objects, surfaces).

In September 2020 the Government published Resilience & Recovery 2020-2021: Plan for Living with Covid-19 which will guide Ireland’s response to saving lives and managing the pandemic over the next seven months. It sets out how Ireland and the Irish people can continue managing the disease in a rapidly changing global environment.

Check out the 5 levels outlined in the
Resilience & Recovery 2020-2021: Plan for Living with Covid-19
