Very concerning.

Over the weekend three children who attend the same creche in Meath tested positive for COVID-19.

The creche based in Navan has also had two staff members test positive for COVID-19.

Daoine Oga Community Childcare Centre currently has a total of five confirmed cases of coronavirus at their facility but naturally parents are worried that there could be more unconfirmed cases.

Parts of the creche have been closed off but some rooms still remain open for use.

All parents whose children use the creche have been made aware of the outbreak.


According to the Meath Chronicle a total of eleven children have been tested so far after the two adult cases were diagnosed. Eight results were returned negative.

That being said some pre-school children in another pod at the creche are still waiting for results, so the fear that there could be cases is still very much a concern for parents.
