COVID-19 Reopening Guidelines for Young People, Children and Education

The Arts Council has worked with the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media to develop guidance for children and young people’s arts and cultural activities. All sectoral guidelines have been developed in line with the government’s COVID19 Resilience and Recovery 2021: The Path Ahead and the Work Safely Protocol, and are based on the latest health guidance available from the Department of Health and the HSE.


A link to the guidance is available in the Arts Council website here: http://www.artscouncil.ie/covid-19/government-guidelines/


As a living document it is anticipated that the guidance will be regularly updated in response to evolving public-health guidance and emerging need.
