A school in Co Tipperary has closed its doors today after an outbreak of Covid-19.
The Presentation primary school in Carrick-on-Suir, which has over 300 pupils, told parents this morning it is suspending classes with immediate effect.
The school is now waiting for public health specialists to carry out a full risk assessment. An update on classes is expected to be provided to parents later this evening.
It is understood the school informed a number of parents of 2nd class pupils over the weekend that their child had been deemed a close contact.
It is believed the outbreak arose elsewhere in the town, which is on the Tipperary-Waterford border.
Thirty cases of Covid-19 were recorded for Co Tipperary on Sunday, while 32 were confirmed across the border in Co Waterford.
