Stay Safe Guidelines and posters

As we’ve entered phase 2 of the government’s roadmap, the public health advice posters have been updated to reflect current advice.

In addition to a new general public health advice poster, there are also “Stay safe guidelines” for use in specific scenarios:

  1. at home
  2. at work
  3. at indoor gatherings
  4. at outdoor gatherings
  5. exercising outdoors
  6. when using public transport
  7. when shopping

The full range of formats are available on the Department of Health Information Resources page.
Irish language versions are also available.

The Stay Safe pop up banner image is available here.

Face Coverings

Starting this Monday (15th June), there will be new radio adverts on air highlighting information on when and how we should use face coverings. There will also be information about face coverings on the HSE’s social media, and we would be grateful if you would re-share any social media content in the coming days and weeks.

You can find information on face coverings here.
 
You can download the poster on how to use face coverings here with a high-resolution version available here.

A new National Bereavement Support Line

The Irish Hospice Foundation, in conjunction with the HSE, has set up a new National Bereavement Support Line to provide connection, comfort and support to those grieving in these exceptional times.  
It is a freephone service and will be open from 10am to 1pm, Monday to Friday, starting from today, Tuesday 9 June.
The number to call is 1800 80 70 77. Please find more information on:
https://hospicefoundation.ie/bereavement-2-2/bereavement-support-line/

The service will provide a confidential space for people to speak about their experience with personnel specifically trained to provide bereavement support and information.

It is anticipated that the Line will be used by health care staff seeking support too.
It is staffed by Irish Hospice Foundation and HSE personnel and volunteers.  


Keep well, remember we're #InThisTogether and #HoldFirm
