We have had a couple of enquiries regarding procedures should a child test positive for COVID.
The current HSE protocols are as follows:
Returning to school or childcare after testing positive Your child can return to school or childcare when both of these apply:
they have not had a high temperature (38 degrees Celsius or over) or other symptoms for 48 hours
it has been 7 days since they first developed symptoms
When they stop self-isolating after 7 days, they need to take extra care for another 3 days to reduce the risk of passing COVID-19 on. Again, please communicate with the school as soon as possible. If your child is displaying symptoms, it is advisable to administer an antigen test before sending them to school.
