A series of meetings have been held within Donegal County Council to plan responses for the next stages of coronavirus.
Emergency measures are being discussed to maintain council services and essential services if the COVID-19 outbreak escalates to a higher level in Ireland.
Senior officials of the council met on Friday last and on Monday to consider plans.
A business continuity plan has been signed off on, it was confirmed, and communications are being sent to staff members on the matter. There are no restrictions on meetings and travel involving council officials and members at present, while the Letterkenny-Milford Municipal District meeting went ahead as normal today.
Meanwhile, the Donegal Fire Service is working on their own contingency plan today.
Liam Ward, Director of Service said the situation is being monitored on a daily basis.
Mr Ward said that the council is following guidance from the HSE and government departments and will continue to do so if the outbreak escalates.
