To slow the spread coronavirus vulnerable people are being asked to cocoon by HSE and other officals.
WHO SHOULD COCOON?
- Everyone aged 70 or over
- Everyone living in a residential home or long term care
- People who have serious medical conditions that make them vulnerable, like: Organ transplant recipients, people undergoing cancer treatment, severe respiratory conditions, rare diseases that increase the risk of infections, pregnant women who have significant heart disease.
WHAT DOES COCOONING MEAN?
It means you should stay at home at all times and avoid face to face contact. This is for the next two weeks initially. Family, carers, neighbours and other public services like Donegal Travellers Project will help ensure you have the support you need.
