- Shaking of hands at sign of peace is suspended.
- Holy Water fonts will be out of use for the time being.
- Ministers of the Eucharist receiving from the Chalice is suspended.
- It is strongly recommended that all members of the faithful who receive communion will receive on the hand.
- The current advice from the HSE is that if parishioners are feeling unwell, they should not attend Mass.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will consider implementing more measures should the need arise.
