Reduce your social contacts by half over the next week – Professor Philip Nolan & Dr. Ronan Glynn

People across the country are being asked to half the number of close contacts they have over the next week in a bid to bring a recent surge in Covid-19 cases under control.

Professor Philip Nolan said that people shouldn’t “eliminate” their social contacts entirely, but should half them over the next week and beyond that.

Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn and Minister Simon Harris also stated that people should count up their close contacts over the last seven days, and cut that number by half over the next seven days.

This plea is being asked in an attempt to get the virus back under control across the country.
