The Outbreak Control Team at Letterkenny University Hospital say they continue to meet on a daily basis to manage the outbreak and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Almost 1,100 staff were tested as part of the universal screening which is the largest hospital-wide screening programme to have taken place in Ireland to date.
As a result, the COVID-19 virus was detected in less than 1% of staff tested as part of the universal screening programme.
0.4% of the 1000 plus staff tested had an active infection. A further 0.5% older, non infectious cases were picked up.
The rate of the virus detected in staff as part of the screening process was significantly less than the average in Donegal and the national average.
Saolta Hospital Group say the extremely low detection rate is indicative of the success of the infection control measures implemented by the hospital, including the use of PPE.
With a decrease in the number of inpatients with COVID-19 and the number of staff impacted by the outbreaks, Saolta now plan to reinstate services deferred over the last number of weeks on a phased basis.
