COVID-19 Update

  • Mar 09,2020

As the global spread of coronavirus COVID-19 develops, our priority continues to be the welfare of our Mayo GAA community. We would, therefore, like to update you on how we are responding to the situation.

Mayo GAA and Croke Park response
- Mayo GAA and Croke Park are continuing to monitor the situation. Our advice is updated based on the latest information from the Health Service Executive and Department of Health. A sub-group of Mayo GAA Executive are in contact regularly to assess our community’s needs and to provide up-to-date information and advice to ensure minimal impact to all our GAA communities. This will be reviewed on a regular basis.

Updates and Advice
- It is important to note that advice may change as circumstances change. We will be running regular updates from all the relevant bodies such as the HSE and Department of Health on our social media platforms

If you are worried about coronavirus COVID-19:
- HSE Advice: Read advice from the HSE on our  Alerts page or on to establish the risk.
- GP: If you are still concerned about your health based on the HSE advice, phone your GP for advice.
- Self- Isolate  : If your doctor instructs you to self-isolate, please make sure to follow their instructions.

Hand, Respiratory and Oral hygiene 
- Good hand hygiene can greatly help reduce the spread of germs.
- Hand sanitiser: All clubs should ensure installed hand sanitisers which dispense a small amount of gel to help kill germs on your hands.
- Hand washing: We encourage club members and staff to wash their hands thoroughly and often. The HSE provides  useful tips for good hand hygiene.
- Avoid shaking hands very people (advice now for religious congregations on the Health Surveillance and Protection Centre website) and avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with your hands.
- Respiratory Hygiene: When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with the bend of your elbow or use a disposable tissue discarded immediately into a closed bin.
- Avoid sharing glasses, cups and water bottles.
