A solution has been found to support healthcare workers that are in need of childcare, according to the Taoiseach.
However, it needs to get the green light from the National Public Health Emergency Team before details can be announced.
Recent weeks have seen unions calling for childcare to be made available for frontline health workers.
The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) has suggested it's the "least that can be done" to support staff at the moment.
The Taoiseach says a solution has been found to the issue of healthcare workers needing childcare support.
However it needs to be given the green light by public health experts, who will discuss it tomorrow

The Taoiseach today said funding is available to implement a plan that is now being put forward.
Mr Varadkar said: "I know it's been very delayed: I know people are very frustrated about it, and we've had a lot of contact from unions about it.
"Whatever we do does have to get public health clearance: one of the things we're trying to avoid during the emergency is households mixing.
"We just have to make sure [NPHET] is satisfied with the proposal that they're going to examine tomorrow."
