Corona Virus Update Kerry

Brazilian COVID variant

Dear All


You will be aware of the newly reported Brazilian variant of COVID.


By way of maximising the communication with people who may have travelled from Brazil in recent weeks, we are requesting Departments to reach out to their agencies and other organisations with which their sectors interact, including through local channels, to facilitate the following information reaching (and, as far as possible, being acted on by) the intended audience:


  • All passengers who have arrived from Brazil in January are requested to come forward for a COVID-19 PCR test.  This test can be obtained by going to a GP and seeking a referral.  GPs have been alerted and will facilitate this without any charge.
  • These travellers are also strongly advised to self-isolate for 14 days from the date of arrival.
  • The HSE’s contracted isolation facility at the Citywest Hotel complex is available to those who are unable to self-isolate in their own homes for any reason and is an option for people from Brazil in this situation.


We ask you to consider, though not limited to, any areas where Brazilian populations are known to be working or living and any national agencies including those involved in the Regulators Forum.


This is to supplement the existing communications through Health.

IBAL Results

It was great to see how well Kerry has done in the Irish Businesses Against Litter survey.

Considering everything has happened in 2020 its wonderful to see all the work that’s been 

done. Even though the normal groups were not allowed during the pandemic it is obvious that 

people have continued to do their best the keep the County clean.

The biggest problem now seems to be empty coffee cups and used P.E. so although its great 

that we can still get our take away coffees and we’re great to wear our masks lets remember

to dispose of them the right way.

            Once again well done to all involved in keeping us clean and green. !!!!!!!!!!!
