Trinity College Has Closed Its Attractions To The Public

The measures came into effect recently.

Trinity College confirmed that the Book of Kells exhibition and Old Library, the Science Gallery and the Douglas Hyde Gallery will be closed for the foreseeable future. Notices of these closures will be posted online and at the main entrances to the college.

A spokesperson from the renowned Trinity College said that this decision has been made ”in the interests of your health and well-being and to decrease any potential impacts on the larger community”.

“The decisions are based on the concept of social distancing which has been recommended by many experts. Our goal is to decrease the number of instances that lead to students, staff, and visitors coming together in large groups in close proximity with each other.”

This social distancing concept also been adopted by Omniplex, who have recently announced ‘in-cinema seat separation’ in light of the steadily increasing number of coronavirus cases in Ireland.

A number of precautionary measures put in place by the college remain, while a list of frequently asked questions pertaining to Trinity College students and visitors to the college can be seen here.

Trinity College has also confirmed that all lectures will be delivered online for the rest of the semester, rather than physically in a lecture hall, due to the impact of the coronavirus.

A statement issued by the college also confirmed that while all lectures being delivered online, tutorials, seminars and laboratory practicals will all continue to be done as usual but with the aforementioned social distancing concept utilised.

“This will allow Trinity to maintain continuity of teaching and learning while minimising the need to bring together students in large groups,” the statement read.

“This will slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus, but further measures may be necessary and these arrangements will be kept under continuous review. Anybody who is unsure about what constitutes a lecture should consult their timetable. If they are still unsure, they should consult their school or course co-ordinator.”

Don’t worry. There are still plenty of attractions and tours open and functioning in Dublin, such as the Guinness Storehouse, EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum and day tours such as Glendalough & Wicklow Mountains, Cliffs of Moher. and much, much more.
