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.
Then, a nursing home based in Wexford town — Kerlogue Nursing Home — had confirmed that they have a confirmed case of Coronavirus on site.
The latest data released by the Department of Health and NPHET shows that there was 190 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the Republic of Ireland today.
At least one case of the coronavirus was confirmed for Wexford, with the Government statement reading as follows:
“The Health Protection Surveillance Centre has today been informed that one person with COVID-19 in Ireland has died.
