Letters from the Chief Medical Officer and PHA

Please note in Prof McBride’s letter, under the paragraph Return of Schools in NI on page 3, it should read –


‘Since schools returned for the 2021/22 school year the high community prevalence of COVID has led to large numbers of COVID cases being reported to schools, with very large numbers of children being identified as school close contacts. This has caused disruption in schools and large numbers of children missing school.’
