Schools will remain closed but operational post Easter holidays

Schools will remain closed until further notice, the Education Minister Joe McHugh has confirmed.

Please note: As per Government announcement at 4:05pm today -

Restrictions on movement due to the coronavirus crisis are being extended for another three weeks.

The strict restrictions announced two weeks ago were initially meant to last until this coming Sunday, April 12th. However, the Government this afternoon confirmed the rules will be extended as health officials continue to work to drive down the number of COVID-19 cases here.

Speaking at Government Buildings this afternoon, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar thanked the public for the "sacrifices they've made so far". However, he said we "have to keep going" - and confirmed the Government has now accepted the latest recommendations from the National Public Health Emergency Team.

The current restrictions - which include the closure of non-essential businesses and everyone being asked to stay at home wherever possible - will now be in effect until Tuesday May 5th.

The Leaving Certificate exams have been postponed until late July or August. Minister McHugh noted that school timetables need to be followed for at least two weeks before the exams can begin. As of now the plan is that this will happen during the summer. Minister McHigh urged the class of 2020 to take a break during the Easter holidays and prepare to begin again after same.

Junior Cycle exams have been cancelled for this year, and will be replaced with school-based exams later in the year.
