Dr Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, said: "The situation nationally is a matter of serious concern and NPHET is now recommending that no more than two households should meet at any given time.

"It is vital that everyone - families, friends and neighbours - limit the opportunities this virus has to move from person to person and stop the spread of the disease across households.

"Behave as though you have the virus and keep yourself and those around you safe – don't take a risk by organising or attending gatherings with more than one other household."
