Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) Webinar on Infection Control Guidance for Early Learning and Care and School Age Childcare Settings

Please note that the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) will host a webinar this Friday, 31 July, on Infection Control Guidance for Early Learning and Care and School Age Childcare Settings (further details below). The webinar will be recorded and made available on the HPSC site afterwards for those who cannot join on Friday.

Please also note that the Department has been working with the HPSC to revise and update the Guidance following feedback from the initial weeks of operation of services and in the context of the plans for reopening schools. It is envisaged that the revised Guidance will be published in the coming days.

This webinar provides an opportunity for services to get on overview of the public health Guidance directly from the HPSC, the authors of the Guidance. It will also cover some of the queries which arose since the publication of the Guidance and which will be addressed in the revised version.

Details on how to register for and join the webinar are set out below. The link to the recorded session will be circulated afterwards and added to the First 5 website.
