Pharmacy Update : Corona virus (COVID-19)
COVID-19 is an illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called corona virus.
Along with all our partners in the health sector, we are dedicated to reducing the spread of the virus. This will require full cooperation by both our healthcare staff and the public as a whole with the elderly and peoples with underlying health conditions at high risk of a fatal outcome.
Please find below a number of links which you will find useful if you are: a healthcare worker and need any advice including if you have travelled from abroad and are scheduled to work in Ireland; video links for how best to handle COVID-19 if you are a healthcare professional, information on travelling from abroad and the latest updates on COVID-19.

Therefore, we would ask you and remind you to please remember to keep a distance of at least 2 metres, wash your hands regularly and stay away from elderly people or people with underlying health conditions whose immune systems are compromised.
Stay safe and please do get in touch with the HSE by calling 112 if you have any concerns that you or a loved one might be infected with COVID-19. Alternatively, we will release another Pharmacy Update in due course.
