The National Action Plan on COVID-19

The Irish Government has approved ‘Ireland’s National Action Plan in response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)’

The plan has been prepared following involvements from all departments and key agencies.

Its main aims are to:

  • Minimise the risk of people becoming unwell
  • Minimise the health, wellbeing and social impact for people who may be at greater risk
  • Reduce the economic and social disruption associated with the COVID-19 outbreak

The plan includes information on:

  • What we know about the COVID-19 virus
  • What the public can do to reduce the threat
  • The public health led approach being taken
  • Supports for businesses and those who have lost their jobs
  • Supports for vulnerable people in society
  • Measures to ensure continuity of essential services
  • Measures to protect vital supply chains

The Health Service Executive (HSE) is implementing a wide range of measures that are unprecedented in their scale and speed in order to face the enormous challenges that COVID-19 will pose in the coming weeks.
