‘Don’t let complacency set in’ – appeal to Kilkenny residents over Bank Holiday weekend
A joint statement by frontline services in Kilkenny has urged the public not to become complacent about Covid-19 this weekend and adhere to the public health measures.
The Health Service Executive, local Gardai and Kilkenny County Council has this simple message – “Don’t let complacency set in!”
In the statement released this afternoon thanking the public for their effort over the past 15 months, they appealed to people not to let efforts slip as we emerge from the shadow of Covid-19.
A spokesperson representing the agencies said: “As society continues to re-open, do not allow complacency to set in regarding Covid-19.
“The Principal Response Agencies are reminding the public across the South East that increased social mixing can still cause people to become infected with the virus and to pass it on to others.
“The HSE, Gardai and the respective Local Authorities are urging continued adherence to the applicable public health measures and for people to keep practicing “the basics” in COVID-19 prevention,” the spokesperson added.
