The Department of Education and Skills has updated information for schools and third level institutions on Covid-19; provided by the Department of Health and HSE Health Protection Surveillance Centre following a meeting of the National Public Health Emergency Team.
We are asking all potential & confirmed course participants before their departure for Ireland to declare whether they have either visited any of the high risk areas as listed on the government website ( https://www.gov.ie/en/ publication/472f64-covid-19- coronavirus-guidance-and- advice/ ), or whether they have had any contact with anyone from those areas.
Please stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available on the WHO website and through your national and local public health authority. Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others. The most important action we can take to protect ourselves from Covid-19 is regular hand-washing and good respiratory hygiene.
We are monitoring closely government & WHO advice on a daily basis. If there are any fundamental changes to either government policy or our own policies then we will update this page. The safety of our clients, staff and homestay and other providers is our top priority, so please be assured that we will remain vigilant and take all reasonable steps to ensure that everyone is safe.
As further advice or information is provided, it will be issued on our website.
