The therapist has undertaken IPC updates in relation to COVID-19 as recommendations by HSE. The current advice from the HSE (https://www2.hse.ie/coronavirus) is that COVID-19 is spread in sneeze or cough droplets. Transmission is therefore possible by:
- Coming into close contact with someone who has the COVID-19 symptoms
- Touching surfaces that someone who has the virus has couched or sneezed on and bringing your unwashed hands to your face (eyes, nose, or mouth).
