Waterford IT issue statement on coronavirus testing

Testing facility for the Covid-19 coronavirus at the WIT Arena

Waterford Institute in Technology (WIT) in partnership with UPMC under the direction of the HSE have commenced preparations to set up a testing facility for the Covid-19 coronavirus at the WIT Arena.

"The institute is proud to be able to be part of the national response to this pandemic. In these extraordinary times we must all play our part and we are comforted that we can make a contribution in this way," a WIT statement reads. 

"To ensure patient confidentiality and public confidence in the process, media and the general public must stay away from testing facilities including the WIT Arena."
