Garda patrols in Dublin

Meanwhile, Gardaí are set to increase the number of high visibility patrols around Dublin in a bid to reduce the number of COVID-19 cases in the capital.

Gardaí are to increase their patrols on foot, in cars and on bikes throughout the county to support the public health guidelines, particularly in relation to social distancing and gatherings of large groups.

John Twomey, the Deputy Commissioner of Policing and Security, said: "As the Acting CMO has said, in Dublin we are now entering a critical phase. As a result, we will have a high visibility presence throughout Dublin to support the public health guidelines and regulations.

"It is vital that people living in, working in and visiting Dublin limit their social interactions, maintain social distancing, wear face masks in shops and on public transport, and not gather in groups larger than outlined in the public health advice."
