Garda Commissioner Drew Harris, at least one Garda assistant commissioner and other senior members of the force have been limiting their movements and undergone Covid-19 testing after a Garda officer they work with tested positive for the virus.

The Irish Times is reporting that the officer who contracted the virus believes he did so at a setting away from his work. The officer, who is now a confirmed case, was in a room with Mr Harris for a prolonged period recently, though Mr Harris was tested at the weekend when he was negative for the virus.

It was only after that meeting with Mr Harris that the officer believed he should go for testing, which confirmed he had the virus.

Other senior Garda officers based at Garda Headquarters in Phoenix Park, Dublin, were also in close contact with the senior member of the force now confirmed as a Covid-19 case and they have been limiting their movements and have undergone testing.
