Masks in Church

HSE Advice December 2022

 The HSE’s Chief Clinical Officer has urged people to wear masks in any crowded areas, or in the company of an older person, after a “significant and worrying” rise in Covid and Flu cases in the last number of days.

The Chief Medical Officer has echoed the comments, urging vulnerable people to wear masks when attending religious services over the Christmas period.

 Everyone attending Mass or services in our churches is encouraged to wear a mask covering nose & mouth at all times.

  • Use the hand sanitisers on entry to the church.
  • Anybody with any covid, flu-like, or cold-like symptoms, should not attend church

Wear a mask to help  protect those of us who are vulnerable to viruses due to age, illness, or compromised immune systems.
