Indoor Playdates and Parties for Children aged 5-12 ‘should be Avoided’ for now – NPHET

Indoor Social Activities for Children Aged 5-12

NPHET has recommended indoor social activities for children aged 5-12 should be reduced for at least the next two weeks.
In his letter to Government, Dr Tony Holohan said indoor gatherings for children “should be avoided” for now – including nativity plays, indoor birthday parties and sleepovers.
It also says over-9s should be included in the legal requirement to wear masks indoors – adding that face masks should be worn in third class and above in primary school.
Currently, face masks are only required in secondary school classes.
Dr Tony Holohan says the advice comes due to “very high incidence rate” of COVID-19 among children.
