Covid-19 drive-through test at Rotunda for frontline staff

The Rotunda Hospital has opened a Covid-19 drive-through testing service for firefighters and paramedics.

Tests are already being provided for doctors and staff from other hospitals and nursing homes locally. Additional tests will be performed for other frontline staff on site at Parnell Square each day. It is hoped results will be received within a matter of hours, which is hoped to enable frontline workers to return to work as soon as they can.
