The Government is responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic as a national concern and has not therefore been providing any localised information.

The Department is working closely with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, local authorities and providers to make sure that all sectors across all communities are prepared to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading.
