Cratloe GAA Confirms Positive Case Of Covid-19

A case of COVID-19 has been confirmed at a Clare GAA club.

Cratloe GAA says it’s been working with the HSE and contact tracing is now underway.


In a statement published this afternoon on the club’s Facebook page, Cratloe GAA says one case associated with the club has been identified.

The club is now working with the HSE to identify close contacts, who’ll be provided with appropriate public health advice and asked to restrict their movements, while they’ll also be offered testing.

Cratloe GAA says other club activities won’t have to be closed, as the person affected acted appropriately and restricted their movements once they became symptomatic.

The Club advises that anyone who is not specifically identified as a close contact and is well, won’t need to take further steps.

However, in line with national health advice, people are being advised to continue to watch out for any symptoms of COVID-19 and anyone who develops symptoms is encouraged to self-isolate and call their GP.

Cratloe is due to take on Éire Óg this Sunday in the Clare Senior Hurling Championship.

It’s understood a meeting of the County Board is taking place this afternoon to decide what action, if any, should be taken.
