Students who refuse to wear face coverings will be sent home from secondary schools

Minister for Education Norma Foley has said pupils who refuse to wear a face covering, other than for medical reasons, will be sent home from secondary schools.

Foley said “each school operates by its own rules, but the schools are aware that it is mandatory to wear the masks”.

She continued to say that children who don’t obey the rule will be sent home “unless a child has a particular ailment or a particular issue from a medical point of view that would mean that they’re not in a position to wear a mask”.

“Everybody’s expected to wear the mask, unless there is a medical dispensation,” she added.
