The Minister for Health Mr Stephen Donnelly has confirmed that there is not going to be a longer mid-term break for schools as the evidence shows that schools are not contributing to a rise in virus numbers. Mr Donnelly further stated that it needs to be understood that for the next two weeks virus figures will get worse, but at the moment a circuit breaker in the form of a complete lockdown is not being considered.
