Communications Pack for community and voluntary groups

Communications Pack for community and voluntary groups and members of the public

The National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) is leading our public health response to COVID-19 and a National Action Plan was published on 16th March, setting out a whole-of-society response and mobilisation of resources across Government and society to fight the spread of the virus.  This Community Response Action Plan supports the National Action Plan and is focused on our initial response in supporting a community response to COVID-19.

The Department of Rural and Community Development have produced a Communications Pack for community and voluntary groups and members of the public and we would appreciate if you distribute this information across your networks, to members of your group, neighbours, friends and recipients of your service.  This pack contains:
