COVID-19 Update (HSE Advice on cocooning)

Coronavirus COVID-19 Update - 30/03/2020  

The HSE has issued information on cocooning and has advised certain groups to cocoon. Solid organ transplant recipients are one of these groups. This advice is in place for 2 weeks from 27 March 2020. This period will be kept under review.

  • For people most at risk, we are giving special advice called cocooning.
  • Cocooning is for people who are extremely medically vulnerable.
  • It means you should stay at home at all times and avoid face-to-face contact. Even within your home, you should minimise all non-essential contact with other members of your household.
  • Family, carers, neighbours and our public services will help ensure you have the support you need.
