Strange times in Galway 2020
COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways.
Ireland’s first case of coronavirus was confirmed on 29 February 2020. You can get detailed information on Ireland’s response to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the latest updates on gov.ie. Ireland has now moved into the delay phase of its response to coronavirus.
The following measures are currently in effect:
- Schools, colleges and childcare facilities are closed from the evening of 12 March.
- Indoor mass gatherings of 100 people or more and outdoor mass gatherings of more than 500 people should be cancelled.
- All State-run cultural institutions are closed.
- All pubs have been advised to close. People have also been asked not to have house parties.
