The Cabinet has signed off level four restrictions for Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal and have agreed a ban on household visits from Thursday night - except on compassionate grounds and essential reasons such as childcare.

This means a ban on household visits, weddings reduced to six people and the closures of hairdressers and barbers. People will only be allowed travel 5km from their home.

Pubs and restaurants will only be permitted to give delivery and takeaway service.

At a meeting this evening, ministers also agreed to ban all household visits nationwide.

LOOKS LIKE CORK HOSPITALS ARE FULL AND NO TESTS AVAILABLE ..Staff of all grades in a Covid-19 unit of Cork University Hospital are on sick leave after contracting the virus or as they await test results, it has been revealed.

A text message from a senior CUH doctor informed GPs across Cork that staff in the unit are off sick with Covid-19 and a number are also awaiting test results.

The staff are based at the acute medical assessment unit (AMU), which has been used to house Covid-19 cases. As a result, the unit cannot be used for assessments due to concerns of more contamination and CUH outpatient appointments will be moved to online platforms only where possible.

In a text message to GPs, the senior CUH doctor said the hospital is “congested”.

“We have reviewed and both admitted and discharged a high number of Covid-19 patients. A proportion of staff of all grades in the AMU are now on sick leave due to confirmed Covid-19 while others await swabs etc.

“The assessment area has been used to accommodate/board Covid-19 cases and can’t be used for assessment due to the risk of cross infection,” the doctor said adding that all patients are therefore being routed and assessed through a single hub in the Emergency Department.

“We will continue to take calls from GPs but have to prioritise supporting the GP assessment hub and assessing acutely unwell patients who need hospital admission," the doctor said.

“For the moment our outpatient clinics where possible will be virtual for the reason above. We will update you as the situation evolves,” the doctor concluded.

The South/South West Hospital Group has been contacted.
