Covid testing centres to close on Thursday

The HSE has announced another important step in the ‘Living With Covid’ plan.

Testing centres as well as the online portal for appointments are closing down on Thursday.

The HSE says the advice around Covid-19 has changed and testing is no longer recommended for the vast majority of people.

Eileen Whelan National Lead for the Covid-19 Test and Tracing Programme says the centres have been open since early March 2020;

“The first testing centre was set up on the LE Samuel Beckett, and we have had many testing centres operating across the country over the past three years.

“Now with the good uptake of vaccination, and population immunity acquired through infection and vaccination, and the changing nature of the virus Covid-19 will now be managed similar to other respiratory illnesses.”
