"I was recently tested and have received a positive result for #Covid19," she said in a statement this morning on Twitter.

"In line with our HSE guidance I am isolating. I am continuing to carry out my duties by working remotely including attending Cabinet." 

McEntee added that health advice has shown that those expecting children are not in a high risk category if they contract the virus.

"The information the HSE has shows that pregnant women or their babies are not at a higher risk if we get Covid19," she said. At the same time I urge everyone to follow public health advice and stay at home.

"If you think you’re developing symptoms no matter how small, act as though you have Covid. We all know the seriousness of the situation. We must protect our health system and our most vulnerable."
