Cocooning is for people who are extremely medically vulnerable. It is for your personal protection.
Cocooning means you should stay at home at all times and avoid face-to-face contact. Even within your home, you should minimise all non-essential contact with other members of your household. We understand the challenges of this request and for many you have been taking these actions for some weeks now, however, it's important to remember that there are various community supports available during this time, for more info click here. The HSE have produced a video that outlines who and how you should be cocooning over this time, available below.
