Written answers (Question to Children)

My Department is currently working with the HSE to finalise an antigen testing programme for early learning and childcare services.  It will be launched in the coming weeks.  

The antigen testing programme for early learning and childcare services will be similar to the antigen testing programme which has recently been rolled out for close contacts in primary schools.
