Below is a short guidance video for parents with information on when to keep your child home from school and what to do if they display COVID-19 symptoms.
See the image below for a list of symptoms to check for before sending your child to school. If your child has any new onset symptoms and feels unwell or seems off form, do not send them to school and contact your GP for advice, if necessary.
The HSE has provided information for parents about the changes to contact tracing and testing for children aged between three months and 13 years in early learning and care, school-aged childcare, education, primary-school sports and social settings.
