Children should not attend school if they have symptoms of Covid 19.
Symptom profiles are available here www2.hse.ie/conditions/covid19/symptoms/overview/ and parents are advised to take a precautionary approach, particularly for children less able to articulate their symptoms, that if a child appears unwell, observe them at home and contact their GP as appropriate.
Close contacts - If your child has been notified by HSE services that they are a close contact of a case of Covid-19, please adhere to the advice on the HSE website in relation to restricted movements and testing. Children under 13 years who are household close contacts must restrict their movements for 14 days and they are offered PCR testing at day 0 and day 10. On receipt of a day 10 not-detected PCR test result, they may exit restricted movements.
