Amount Of Covid-19 Cases At Nursing Homes Continue To Increase

Health officials say the area of greatest concern is now the number of cases in residential institutions.

167 deaths have been confirmed among Covid-19 patients at nursing homes.

Tusla says its caseload has fallen with schools closed - and it wants the public to know they can still report any concerns they have about the safety of a child. In normal times, a quarter of the Child and Family Agency's referrals come from schools.
Patricia Finlay, Tusla's services director, says social workers are still working during the pandemic.
