Yet another school has had to contact parents to confirm they have had a confirmed case of COVID-19.

A primary school in Co Meath got in touch with parents with information from the HSE after a student was confirmed to have tested positive for the virus.

It reads: “A public health risk assessment has been undertaken and the parents of children deemed to be close contacts of the confirmed case have been contacted and advised accordingly.

“If your child has not been identified as a close contact at this time, your child does not need a test for COVID-19 and may continue to attend school.”
