Written answers (Question to Health)

The HSE put in place interim public health measures for vulnerable groups where self-isolation due to Covid-19 was required. The HSE has ceased this service as the hotel being used is no longer available.

As this is a service matter, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the Deputy directly, as soon as possible.
