New Guidelines Won't Include Compulsory Wearing of Face Masks

The National Public Health Emergency Team meets this morning to discuss further measures for Covid-19.

It's expected they'll issue formal guidlines shortly on when people should start wearing facial coverings, and how they should find, make and use them, but it won’t be mandatory.
The death toll from the virus stands at 1,467, after a further 15 patients died, while there have been 23,135 cases diagnosed here.

Chief medical officer Tony Holohan says any recommendation on the wearing of masks would be optional
