We canât stop the virus, but together, we are slowing it down. If you are leaving your home today, remember to practice good hand hygiene, social distancing, and if you cough or sneeze, do so into a tissue or your sleeve. #HoldFirm #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/Wgs2GNW8IV— HSE Ireland (@HSELive) June 14, 2020
Meanwhile, Health Minister Simon Harris said masks are not a “magic shield” against coronavirus.
A public health information campaign on the use of face masks or coverings is set to be launched by the Government this week.
“The most important thing is that people wear face coverings on public transport, in shops and enclosed areas,” he told RTE The Week in Politics programme.
“I do accept that our messaging needs to be clearer on this… it is not a magic shield – there is a growing body of evidence that it is an additional hygiene measure.
“It is not going to stop you from getting coronavirus but it will prevent droplets spreading to someone else.”
