Expert Warns Against Changes To Contact Rules For School Children

Any change to close contact rules for school children would put them at unnecessary risk of Long Covid, according to an infectious disease expert.

The HSE's CEO Paul Reid suggested yesterday that it's time to re-consider keeping kids out of school if they're close contacts, but have no symptoms.
