Nursing Homes Implement New Restrictions For Visitors

Visits to nursing homes will be allowed for counties in Level 1 or 2 restrictions only, but with protective measures in place.

The Health Protection Surveillance Centre says nursing homes in counties which have level 3 or higher restrictions will only be allowed for critical or compassionate grounds.

However, events such as organised outings or a 'social drive' in a private car are only permitted in Level 1.

While Nursing homes are to receive €30 million in funding to protect the most vulnerable against a second wave of Covid-19.

According to the Irish Independent, the funding will cover things like extra staff and PPE.
