The centre was first notified of an outbreak of Covid in late August

Staff and residents at a nursing home in Longford are continuing to be tested for Covid every 5 days following an oubreak of the virus earlier this month.

Over a dozen staff and residents tested positive earlier this month, resulting in visitor restrictions being implemented at Laurel lodge nursing home.

The centre has confirmed that any positive cases are being cared for in a specific ward.
