Re: Confirmed case of COVID-19 at Colaiste Ide & Iosaf


A confirmed case of COVID-19 in your child’s school, Colaiste Ide & Iosaf, has been notified to the Department of Public Health HSE Mid-West.

A public health risk assessment has been undertaken and the parents of any children deemed to be close contacts of the confirmed case will be contacted and advised accordingly. If your child is not identified as a close contact, your child does not need a test for COVID-19, they can continue to attend school, and no further actions are required at this time.

If your child develops any symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 infection (such as a cough, a fever, shortness of breath, loss or change in sense of taste or smell), please do not send your child to school, isolate your child and contact your GP. If your GP considers COVID-19 a possibility and refers your child for a swab, others in the household must then restrict their movements until the swab result is available.

Information on self-isolation is available at:


Information on restricting movements is available at:



Further information on COVID-19 is available at: www.hpsc.ie and www.gov.ie

Yours sincerely,

Dr Breda Cosgrove
