Thurles C P U Police Cork-Dublin Train Re. Covid-19

A Thurles Community Policing Unit (CPU) travelled on the Cork to Dublin train, from Thurles to Templemore yesterday; their reason was to remind passengers travelling on public transport of the government and Health Service Executives guidelines, with regard to preventing the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

This was prompted by concerns about the low levels of mask-wearing by commuters travelling in confined situations, where Covid-19 could easily be spread with the need to increase public transport capacity as people returned to work over the past number of weeks.

Infectious diseases experts have stated there needed to be visible enforcement of the rule on public transport as soon as possible.

Well done guys.
