Advice to all Members

10th March 2020

If the station is closed down we will ask presenters to send in a show if they can or else we will play edited backups and work remotely.

The safety and well-being of our members, staff and visitors is very important and we are monitoring advice provided by the Irish authorities – Department of Health, Department of Foreign Affairs and the HSE – regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19. We are adopting a policy of high-compliance and seek to adopt further measures to minimise the risks where it is appropriate to do so.

General Instructions.
In order to minimise the risk of the spread of COVID-19 at the station, at Outside Broadcast Events, meetings and training, you are asked to do the following:


If you or a member of your household is returning from any of the areas identified as high-risk by the HSE or the Department of Foreign Affairs; whether or not symptoms are evident, we request that you do not come into the station.


Please contact a member of staff immediately if you believe that a risk of transmission of the virus has arisen for any reason on Dundalk FM premises.


When at the station, events or meetings, please observe the personal hygiene recommendations.

    • Meticulous hand washing.

    • Covering coughs and sneezes in the correct manner to avoid the spread of infected water-droplets.

    • Safe disposal of used tissues and cleaning of infected surfaces.

    • Wipe the desk faders and desktops – wipes are provided in the studio.
