Chief Executive Of The HSE Says They’re ‘Working Closely’ With Cork Primary School Following Covid Outbreak

The school was closed earlier this week due to a number of positive Covid-19 test results

Gaelscoil Uí Drisceoil in Glanmire was temporarily closed earlier this week after 17 positive Covid cases were identified.

The school is due to reopen again on the 8th of December.

In the meantime, all students and staff at the school are being tested for the virus

HSE Chief Executive Paul Reid says they are still waiting on the results of these tests, and that the process is ongoing:

‘We would be working very closely with that school and that school principal right now, today, in terms of monitoring and assessing as the tests come back as well. It is a process that’s ongoing with the school and the school’s board of management as well. It’s a balance of risks that our teams make a judgement on.’
