Additional guards have been drafted to Dublin, and targeted checkposts will be set up across the country to urge capital residents to comply with new regulations to prevent the spread of Kovid-19.
Taoist Michael Martin made the announcement this afternoon Dublin III Corona virus will move into controls for three weeks from midnight today. The new measures include restrictions on gatherings, trips and visitors to private homes.
Once the third level comes into effect, Operation Fanach will resume operations in Garda County with targeted patrolling and checkposts to monitor compliance with public health measures.
There will be a high level of garda visibility on foot, in cars and bikes to monitor people’s gatherings in facilities and open spaces. Targeted checkposts will also be set up throughout the county.
Officers from surrounding areas will assist the Dublin Army, focusing on patrolling public and public spaces.
The Guardians advise people not to go to or go to Dublin unless absolutely necessary.
The army said officials will use a three-pronged approach (engagement, education and promotion) to encourage compliance with the guidelines and rules. Enforcement will only be used as a last resort.
“As a community, we all need to come together to re-protect ourselves and our most vulnerable,” said Deputy Commissioner John Toomi.
It is imperative that each individual play their part and adhere to public health rules and guidelines to reduce the growing prevalence of Kovid-19.
Deputy Commissioner Toomi added that the local garda was ready to support vulnerable people at this time. “If you feel isolated, need help shopping, need prescriptions or anything else, please contact your local garda station,” he said.
