Hi Everyone – Happy Friday!

A couple of updates for you today…


Thank you all so much for the great turn out today and yesterday for testing.  We will be sending 94 tests to the laboratory which is a total of 76% of all staff and volunteers, this is the highest number of serial testing participants to date, and shows a huge commitment to ensure each others and our residents health and safety.  Thank you all.

Unfortunately it looks likely the government will implement the advice from NPHET this evening and therefore we must suspend all visiting from close of business today, Friday.  We will be cancelling any appointments made for next week.  If there is any change to these arrangements we will let you know.  Please try and keep in touch with families via zoom / Whatsapp calls on the available tablets / phones.  Families may be calling more frequently to the lodge mobiles so please keep mobile phones close to hand and fully charged.  We will reopen visiting as soon as public health advice allows.  


In preparation for the expected announcement today taking Dublin to a Level 3 status we have printed letters for staff indicating that you are healthcare workers and need to travel for work. If you require a letter please collect from reception today or early next week.
