Numerous gardaí based in Dublin have been forced to self-isolate after a person staying at a hotel as part of mandatory quarantine rules tested positive for Covid-19.
Several members have been forced to self-isolate having been deemed close contacts.
The person is believed to have tested positive after beginning their stay at the hotel, which was required by law because they entered the country from a so-called ‘designated state’.
“An Garda Síochána will not be providing commentary on the individual status of any members of An Garda Síochána or individual garda stations/ sections,” a statement said.
“There is currently no impact on the services of An Garda Síochána. An Garda Síochána will provide necessary information on our service capability if necessary.”
