Stay Safe. Protect each other. Wear a face covering.


Everyone in Ireland has helped to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We have worked together in difficult circumstances to save many lives. Now that our services and communities are re-opening, we all want to stay safe and keep protecting each other from coronavirus.  We do this by cleaning our hands, social distancing and covering sneezes and coughs.

We can also do this by wearing a face covering.  Face coverings help prevent people who don’t know they have the virus from spreading it to others. They should be worn anywhere it’s difficult to stay 2m apart, like shops or public transport, or when visiting anyone who’s more at risk. This includes people aged over 70, or people who are medically vulnerable.

Wear a face covering to show your support for others, and to help in our fight against coronavirus.

The HSE will be supporting people to do this with an advertising campaign on radio, social media, posters, search advertising, and on our website, The TV ad will start on the 23rd June.

Please find attached a partner pack for face coverings. We are grateful for your help in sharing and displaying this information.
