King’s Inns Response to Covid–19

Page last updated: Monday, April 25, 2022

King’s Inns is closely monitoring and following official advice from the HSE in order to protect our staff, students and members during the current COVID–19 outbreak.

Take care, download the HSE COVID Tracker APP and follow HSE advice in adhering to social distancing procedures, and in the event you feel unwell.

In line with the Government decision announced on Tuesday, February 22, face coverings are no longer compulsory in King’s Inns. However, to continue protecting each other, especially the medically vulnerable, we encourage that masks continue to be worn when in close proximity to another person. In addition, good infection prevention measures such as hand washing and respiratory hygiene should continue. We have the HEPA filters switched on and the windows open for ventilation.
