Tánaiste Leo Varadkar tested positive for Covid-19 today, his spokesman confirmed.
r Varadkar is suffering from “mild intermittent symptoms” but is generally healthy but is in self-isolation due to a positive antigen test.
The spokesman for the Tánaiste said he tested negative in Brussels yesterday but received a positive antigen result this morning.
Mr VaradKar had a number of scheduled dates in Cork today but these were canceled and the Tánaiste will now self-isolate for seven days.
It comes after Justice Secretary Helen McEntee and Health Secretary Stephen Donnelly both tested positive this week.
After being stranded in the US on St Patrick’s Day, Taoiseach Micheál Martin was allowed to travel out of isolation to attend a summit of EU leaders in Brussels after testing negative.
