A positive case of Covid19 has been identified in Ms. Mc Carthy's class. The HSE have carried out a risk assessment and decided to recommend testing of all children and teachers in Room 10 on December 22nd. In each case the school is obliged to follow the instructions given by Public Health. We will continue to do all in our power to keep all the children safe. We have been asked to pass on this message from the HSE:
"A confirmed case of Covid19 in Scoil Carmel has been notified to the Department of Public Health. A public health risk assessment has been carried out and the staff and parents deemed to be close contacts of the confirmed case have been contacted and advised.If your child is not identified as a close contact your child does not need a test and no further action is required at this time.
If your child develops symptoms suggestive of Covid19 please contact your GP and begin restricting your child's movements as per public health advice.Restricted movement means avoiding contact with other people and social situations as much as possible.Further information is available on www.hse.ie."
Take care and stay safe,
