Serial testing, antigen testing and rapid test-and-trace must be utilised to the greatest extent possible
Social Democrats co-leader, and Kildare North TD, Catherine Murphy has expressed concern at reports of an outbreak of 70 covid cases at the Intel site in Leixlip.
Deputy Murphy said:
“I have been assured the company is working with public health teams to identify and isolate any positive cases.
“A review of travel procedures, to and from and site, should be undertaken to ensure that transmission is not occurring when workers are congregating in cars or buses on their way to, or from, work.
“It is hugely important that serial testing, antigen testing and rapid test-and-trace are all utilised to the greatest extent possible to break chains of transmission, ensure a safe work environment and prevent spread to the wider community.”
