CMO to review possible shortened Covid isolation period

The seven-day isolation rule for those with Covid-19 could be shortened following discussions at the Cabinet sub-committee on Health this evening.

Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan will now review the isolation period, and then make a recommendation to Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly.

Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said that while the seven-day isolation period is under review, he does not see a change to this advice “any time soon”.
