James Fenton

RTE are looking for people to take part in a new series called Operation Covid Nation which is set to air in April.

Operation Covid Nation will see the Operation Transformation team ‘help people stay healthy, in mind and body, as people are having to live apart from family and friends and the normal routine of everyday life.’

Kathryn Thomas will be joined by experts Aoife Hearne, Karl Henry, Dr Eddie Murphy and Dr Sumi Dunne and they’re looking for households across the country to join in and let the nation know how they’re getting on amid the Covid-19 situation.

A total of four households will be chosen and each will be paid an appearance fee for participation in the series. Successful candidates will have cameras set up in their homes to follow how they are living day to day, with social distancing rules being followed by all production team members.

RTE says that ‘whether you are living alone, in a house share, working from home, adapting to home school your children and have chosen to self-isolate our Operation Transformation experts want to support and help you.’
