The HSPC have published a new Decision Pathways document that providers some new information on when children from 3 months to 13 years can attend their school and ELC/SAC setting. The document includes the following change to previous advice:
A child with nasal cold symptoms (runny nose or sneezing) can continue to attend their ELC/SAC setting, provided:
The child is otherwise well and active,
The child has no new cough or temperature, and
There is no other person in the child’s household with a suspected or confirmed case of Covid-19.
Please see scenario E in the HPSC’s Decision Pathways document for further information.
Other advice remains unchanged.
