Our Health & Wellbeing Committee have received this message and graphic from the Community & Health Team in Croke Park.
“We hope this finds you and yours well. It’s been a real inspiration to see the leadership shown by County Health & Wellbeing Committees and Healthy Clubs in response to the coronavirus Covid-19 crisis this week. You are helping to keep people connected and assisting the most vulnerable in our communities. Keep it up.
At national level the Community & Health Department is working with the Department of Health, the HSE, and Department of Rural and Community Development to identify how our units and members can best assist those in need, and we expect further clarification early next week from the authorities, which we will then share with you.
We are also exploring ways through which we can connect with you directly and hope to deliver some Healthy Club forums remotely via webinars. More details to follow next week.
In the meantime, please continue to adhere to the public health guidelines regarding Covid-19, and stay safe. Attached is a simple PDF document that you may wish to share with you clubs and members. Remember, the content applies to you also – you can’t look after anyone else unless you look after yourself!
