Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health

Update on Covid-19: Discussion

Dr. Ronan Glynn:

We would not have given specific advice in regard to the return to full capacity on public transport, and that was a Government decision. Obviously, all of these things remain under ongoing review and, clearly, again, as part of our ongoing look at data specifically around the return to education over this number of weeks, we are considering all of these issues. Again, as per the CMO's comments earlier, we would hope to see a transition across a range of measures, albeit ensuring that the basic preventative measures remain in place through the autumn and winter.
