Hope everyone keeping well. I know there’s lots of anxiety out there, lotsa “fake news”.

But it’s good to be informed. So here are some links to credible websites:

HSE for updated comprehensive advise on protecting yourself, symptoms, self, isolating, etc 

Department of Foreign Affairs for Travel advice related to Corona Virus

World Health Organisation – more pretty regularly updated information – may be of interest if you’ve travel plans
