A childcare worker who tested positive for Covid-19 had recently returned from a trip abroad, it is understood.

Some parents have expressed concern as the crèche where the person works has not closed its doors after the confirmed case of coronavirus. Parents whose children attend the facility on Dublin's northside received a message alerting them to the fact that a childcare worker had contracted the virus.
