Wexford and Enniscorthy GP Doctor Bill Lynch, who is our weekly contributor on Morning Mix, has paid tribute to the people of Wexford for their resolve and determination in keeping Covid numbers down.
He says his practice is not seeing many presentations of positive Covid cases in recent weeks.
“It is testimony to the resolve and the determination to the Wexford population to do the right thing.
“They continue to self isolate, social distance and wear masks and so on.
“But also people are self referring to testing.
“If you have got any respiratory symptoms you can self present without an appointment to the walk in test centre in Clonard.”
