Are you ghosting the HSE?
At the HSE weekly covid press briefing, HSE’s National Lead for Testing and Tracing Niamh O’Beirne said:
“We now see 35% of our close contacts fully vaccinated, which is 5% up on the previous week, and continues to take those individuals if they don’t have symptoms out of our system.”
“One of the problems we do have in contact tracing is people answering the phone. If you are an index case you will know because you have received a text.”
“Please take that call, it’s an important call.”
