Sick Children Should Be Kept At Home For 48 Hours After Symptoms Resolved.

The Chief Medical Officer, Professor Breda Smyth, is urging parents to continue to be mindful of others when their children are sick and to keep them home from school and childcare facilities, if they are displaying new symptoms of illness.

The flu, COVID-19 and RSV (Respiratory syncytial virus) is continuing to spread, with these three respiratory viruses, accounting for more than 1,200 hospitalisations last week.

Professor Smyth also strongly advised anyone with any new flu-like symptoms, to stay at home to avoid spreading infection to other potentially more vulnerable people.

Parents were also reminded by Professor Smyth that children should be kept at home for at least 48 hours after their symptoms have fully or substantially resolved.
