Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said today that Primary and Secondary schools are to reopen at the end of August, as the new academic year begins. The Taoiseach has said that; “We know that it’s not a no-risk scenario but it is a low-risk scenario.”

“We are learning from the experience of countries that have at least partially reopened schools already, and from the experience of countries that have had to reimpose restrictions.”

According to RTE News, the Taoiseach has said the objective is to open schools “as fully as possible, as soon as possible.”
