The health and safety of visitors and residents is of vital importance to us at Into Kildare. Following the announcement by Taoiseach Micheál Martin, Level 3 under the Plan for Living with COVID-19 will be implemented at midnight on October 6th. Into Kildare are monitoring the situation closely and will provide you with accurate, up-to-date information to help you stay safe.
We are working together with our members and businesses in Kildare to implement the new measures announced yesterday evening. We urge people in Kildare to adhere to the new guidelines to ensure the safety of residents living in Kildare.
These measures are being put in place to protect the vulnerable across Ireland as well as to stop the spread of the virus. They are in place for a period of 3 weeks until midnight on 27th October 2020, at which point the situation will be reviewed.
Residents in the Republic of Ireland will not be permitted to travel outside of their counties except for in limited circumstances including to necessary travel to and from work, under plans agreed by the Government.
At this time we encourage people living in Kildare to ‘Be a Tourist in Your Own County’ and get out and about and visit some of the great gardens, parks & historic sites on your doorstep. Remember to always check with the visitor attraction in advance to confirm visiting times and become aware of their social distancing measures in place.
There is strength in numbers, so let’s all work together and do our part over the next few weeks to combat the spread of the virus. We Care in Kildare and we will keep you updated with all the latest information. Please see below the implications of the implementation of Level 3.
Stay Safe and Stay Well!
