This latest case of Covid-19 comes after two separate Dublin construction sites were forced to close earlier this week. 

The East Quad site in Grangegorman was closed on Thursday for a deep clean following a positive Covid-19 test in a single worker, while a site on Townsend Street closed after 20 workers tested positive for the virus.
