Irish public urged to maintain social distancing and adhere to public health advice this weekend

Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly has strongly appealed to those going out this weekend to maintain social distancing.

The appeal comes amid increasing concern about a rise in the number of new confirmed cases of Covid-19, particularly among younger people.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin said public health doctors’ concern about crowded indoor gatherings was something the Government would have to look at very carefully.

The 25 new cases of Covid-19 confirmed yesterday evening is the highest number since the middle of June.
