Stay Safe: Travel plans should only be a secondary consideration. Your own safety and that of others should be the most important consideration. Our only advice in these matters is:
1. Get your information on how to protect yourself from authoritative sources, for example The HSE Website.
2. Do not rely on Social Media posts. Many of the posts doing the rounds on Facebook, Whatsapp etc. are spreading dangerous misinformation or rumours which have no basis in fact.
3. For best advice on travelling abroad the most up to date advice is to be found on the Department of Foreign Affairs Website.
