As Ireland is set to receive more vaccine doses in the coming months, HSE chief executive Paul Reid suggested that healthcare workers who refuse to get vaccinated may be removed from their posts.

Teachers and parents have been told that posting cases of Covid-19 online linked to schools stigmatises children with the virus and may prevent others from coming forward with symptoms.

A number of colleges and universities across Ireland are planning to offer short-term rentals to students who will be completing the majority of their studies for the next academic year online.
Leaving Cert results and CAO offers will not be released until early September, at least three weeks later than usual due to disruptions to the education system caused by Covid-19.
