Local lockdowns to tackle outbreaks of Covid-19 not ruled out

Minister of State Pippa Hackett has said it is not possible to rule out the introduction of local lockdowns to tackle high incidents of Covid-19 in the community.

The minister made the comment on RTÉ's The Week In Politics. It comes as there have been calls for more walk-in Covid testing centres and improved communication of public health messages to help address the spread of infections in Co Donegal.

It follows a virtual meeting last night involving Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly, Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan, and local political and council representatives.
