Health Officials Concerned At Improper Use Of Masks

Restrictions were lifted in Kildare yesterday after more than three weeks, following a recent drop in the level of Covid-19 cases.

Meanwhile  the National Public Health Emergency Team is raising concern over the number of people not wearing face coverings correctly, with too many wearing masks under their chin, or not covering their noses.

53 new cases of Covid-19 were confirmed yesterday evening, but no further deaths.

Acting Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn says while the level of compliance is encouraging, there are huge risks if people don't wear a mask properly:
