Nursing Home In Wexford Confirms They Have A Confirmed Case Of Coronavirus

It’s worrying that Wexford and the Coronavirus are starting to make the headlines again…

A garden centre in Camolin had confirmed that they closed their premises after one of their staff members tested positive for Covid-19.

This news was quickly followed by Wexford Camogie postponing some of their club games, which was followed by a Wexford GAA club, Ferns St Aidans, suspending all activity due to Covid-19 concerns.

Now, a nursing home based in Wexford town — Kerlogue Nursing Home — has confirmed that they have a confirmed case of Coronavirus on site.

“Kerlogue nursing home has unfortunately one confirmed case of COVID 19. We have engaged with the HSE and relevant authorities to implement appropriate measures, to provide medical care to all our residents.

We are engaging with health officials with regard to comprehensive contact tracing and all necessary precautions are being taken. We are collectively focused on providing residents in our nursing home with the best possible care and protecting them from COVID 19.

We take this opportunity to thank all our staff who are attending for duty and our extended community, for their fantastic commitment and dedication to Kerlogue Nursing Home.

We ask the media to respect the privacy of our residents, staff and families during this difficult time,” a statement read.

The last week has been worrying for the people of Wexford. Just as we thought that the Coronavirus looked like it was going away, it has quickly reappeared into our society and our county once again.

As a county that has done so well in relation to the Coronavirus, we must remember to remain vigilant.

This virus has not gone away. Although some may note that they are tired of it, this is just another clear sign that the Coronavirus is here to stay for another while yet.

At Wexford Weekly, we would like to wish a speedy recovery to the person in question — and here’s hoping that all staff, and residents of Kerlogue Nursing Home, keep safe too as the battle continues.
