Bus Éireann is advising its customers that services may be affected in Waterford, due to the high levels of COVID cases in the county.
The bus operator says 'it is possible that some services may be affected or cancelled as a result of staff absences.'
It says it is currently experiencing a 'higher than usual level of Covid-related absences in Waterford, whether confirmed cases or through necessary self-isolation', however it wouldn't disclose exactly how many drivers are currently absent from their Waterford branch.
The county is currently sixth highest in the country in terms of COVID incidence, having led the chart for a number of days, with particularly high incidence in the south of the city.
4,764 new cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed this evening.
598 patients are in hospital with the virus - down 13 from yesterday - while the ICU figure is down six, to 126.
However, the Déise's Bus Eireann division seems to be particularly affected, with the operator introducing voluntary antigen testing on-site for employees who are asymptomatic.
It's asking customers to stay up-to-date by visiting buseireann.ie and expressway.ie - and are advising customers to check before travel, particularly over the coming weekend.
