The Minister for Justice Helen McEntee has tested positive for Covid-19.
McEntee confirmed the news this morning on Twitter and said she is self-isolating in line with HSE guidance.
“In line with our HSE guidance I am isolating. I am continuing to carry out my duties by working remotely including attending Cabinet.
“The information the HSE has shows that pregnant women or their babies are not at a higher risk if we get Covid-19.”
McEntee announced last month that she is pregnant.
