Well done to all residents of Direct Provision centres who are complying with the requirement for social distancing and especially for not meeting with others in their homes. Because most people around the country are doing this, it is now having positive results.
The Irish Chief Medical Officer stated yesterday as part of his daily report, that because people are in contact with far less people, when the medical authorities are contact tracing for positive cases they have much smaller numbers to trace. See his full statement below and click on the image for more information.
Please keep up the good work, being in close contact with less people outside your centre means a much reduced chance of catching the virus, passing it on if you have it (even if you have no symptoms) and making sure there are less people to trace if you are tested positive at any time. As the virus can take up to 14 days to develop, contact tracers may have to look back at all your contacts over the previous 14 day. KEEP IT TO ZERO outside the centre where you live and, even there, keep close contact to a minimum.
Wash Hands, Cough/Speak carefully, clean surfaces/door handles, & nobody closer than 2 metres outside your centre.
