  • Parents are asked to inform the school principal immediately if their child tests positive for Covid-19.
  • The principal then contacts all parents, whose children are in the same pod, without revealing the name of the positive case.
  • The principal, will give parents the information they need to request antigen tests for their child from the HSE.
  • Parents administer the tests at home, according to the instructions issued by the HSE.



  • Children may continue to attend school, as long as they do not have any symptoms and all 3 antigen tests are negative.
  • In cases where there are more than one positive PCR in a class, antigen tests may be made available to all of the class.
  • Please remember that these rules only apply for school contacts.
