COVID-19 (Corona Virus) UPDATE
ROAD has made the decision to temporarily suspend all face-to-face meetings with our Participants and stakeholders until further notice. We will be making contact with all of our Participants via other methods and will continue to remain in contact and offer support via these channels.
Please follow our social media platforms for updates.
The Government Strategy is to delay transmission across communities and keep people safe. On 16th March 2020, The Prime Minster outlined measures to be implemented, including:
The general population is advised to:
- stop non-essential contact with others and to stop all unnecessary travel;
- avoid social gatherings (big or small) and
- avoid pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues.
Vulnerable Groups are determined to be:
- People over 70 years old:
- People with serious chronic conditions; and
- Pregnant women.
Government advice for people in the above categories is to shield themselves from non-essential contact for a period of 12 weeks.
