HSE update Covid 19 Virus

The Department of Education and Skills has received a number of letters over the past few days from the Chief Medical Officer at the Department of Health, Dr Tony Holohan, addressing the recent school closure as a result of the confirmed Covid-19 case.

Chief Medical Officer advice to parents and schools

We would like to direct your attention to updated guidance issued this morning on talking to children and young people about Covid-19.

You can access and download this guidance in both Irish and English from the Department of Education and Skills website below under the heading ‘Talking to children and young people about Covid-19’.

We would also like to direct your attention to a child-friendly interview that Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn did with RTÉ’s new2day programme last week, that may also be a useful resource when talking about Covid-19 with children and students.
