Covid 19 Information for Parents


Please see a list of useful resources with information for parents for students returning to school….

From the HSE Website: https://www2.hse.ie/conditions/coronavirus/symptoms.html

If you have any common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), you should 
self-isolate and phone your GP straight away to get a coronavirus test.

Common symptoms of coronavirus include:
a fever (high temperature – 38 degrees Celsius or above)
a cough – this can be any kind of cough, not just dry
shortness of breath or breathing difficulties
loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
It can take up to 14 days for symptoms to show. They can be similar to symptoms of cold and flu.
Getting an early diagnosis from your GP means you can get the help you need and take steps to avoid spreading the virus, if you have it.
