However, following the increased number of COVID-19 cases in Italy, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has said there is an increased risk of similar clusters of cases in other EU countries. Ireland is currently monitoring the situation and the HSE / HPSC is updating its website www.hpsc.ie

The flu virus is earlier than usual this year, but it’s still not too late!
The best way to protect you, your family and your Service Users is to get this year’s vaccine.
As a Healthcare worker, PA, or driver, you are at an increased risk of exposure and infection. At least 20% of healthcare workers are infected with flu every year and many continue to work while being ill. You can pass on the flu virus to somebody you care for even before you know that you are sick. This increases the risk to family, colleagues, and Service Users.

This is the season for flus and winter vomiting bugs. Noro virus, better known as the winter vomiting bug, is the most common stomach bug in Ireland, affecting people of all ages.
It is highly contagious and causes vomiting and diarrhoea. Noro virus can be unpleasant to experience, but it is not generally dangerous, and most people make a full recovery within a couple of days, without having to see a doctor.
The Board and Executive of Cork CIL are delighted to publish our new Strategic Plan 2019–24. Guiding the direction of Cork CIL over the next 4 to 5 years, the plan reaffirms our commitment to keeping Service Users central to all our activities.
