Two schools in Co. Kerry have sent students home after cases of covid-19 were identified.

The primary and secondary schools are both located in the west of the county.

The secondary school found out this morning that one of its students had contracted the virus.

As a result, all students in the same class as this pupil have been sent home.

Meanwhile, a nearby primary school has sent home two classes after one of its students tested positive for covid-19.

Speaking this morning, HSE CEO Paul Reid said he was "very pleased" with how schools have responded to recent cases of covid-19.

Over one million students returned to class over the past week or so, with cases of the virus confirmed at two Dublin schools.

Meanwhile, a primary school in Co. Clare has closed after some staff members were deemed close contacts of a case of COVID-19.

Mr Reid commended public health teams who have acted very quickly and diligently upon being notified of a case.
