At the COVID-19 press conference on March 27th, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, Minister for Health Simon Harris, and Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan outlined new public health restrictions. From a Local Link Mayo transport perspective, we recommend the public should not use public transport unless absolutely necessary. Local link Mayo services will continue to enable people to access essential services and will ensure social distancing and vehicle hygiene.
Local Link Mayo rural transport services will continue as normal apart services to schools and community centres that are now closed. Please ensure that you pre book your seat as places are reduced in some areas as we adhere to social distancing and public health guidelines issued by the Chief Medical Officer and the HSE. A number of Local Link services are offering to deliver critical medical supplies to the elderly, the vulnerable and sick who live alone within rural areas during the coming weeks. All drivers are Garda vetted and have undertaken relevant training in particular regarding supporting vulnerable adults
