The HSE has confirmed that a tracking app is in the works to assist them with contact tracing.
They are also going to use the Citywest Convention Centre in Dublin to treat Coronavirus patients.
The Health Service is hoping to have the facility up and running within the next few months.
Inside the CityWest facility:
This is going to be used as an isolation/overflow centre.

It's the first of its kind, and will house over 1,100 people who need to self-isolate, people who are sick and people who are awaiting a test result.
Dr Paul Connors, National Director of Communications at the HSE, also confirmed that they are hoping to introduce a tracking app to help with contact tracing.
Meanwhile, Paul Reid, CEO of the HSE, said there's more than one element to the new facility.
He said: "One is isolation, and the second is securing temporary beds for people who are stepping down from probably more acute hospital care but who are not quite ready to return home."
Those are in all cases where the person can't isolate at home.
