The National Public Health Emergency Team is currently reviewing the use of masks in primary schools
Representatives appeared before the Oireachtas Health Committee this morning.
Deputy Cathal Crowe described the ongoing use of masks in primary schools as a struggle, and asked when this measure would be stood down.
Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn says it’s currently under review:
“We made a commitment that we would review that recommendation in February, with a view towards either continuing with it or stepping down from the time that children go back after the midterm break. And so we’re in the process of reviewing that evidence at the moment and we’ll considered that over the next 10 days and make a recommendation.”
