Covid-19, Mental Health and Older People: Statements
I thank the Deputy very much for those kind comments. I am very much aware of the outbreak in the school in Youghal. As we all know, this can be very traumatic for the pupils and staff alike. The Deputy is correct that a walk-in centre will be facilitated. I am not sure of the exact details of where it will be but I will revert to the Deputy in writing on that point. We have seen these walk-in centres all over the country and they are very effective. We are finding asymptomatic people in various communities who do not realise that they have Covid-19 and these centres have been very effective. If it is okay with the Deputy I will revert in writing to him with the exact location when the details emerge.
