Tanaiste Wants Workers Back In Offices From August

The Tanaiste wants public health officials to let workers back in offices from August.

Leo Varadkar feels enough people will be vaccinated by then to allow the move.

This is a month earlier than the original plan.

Mr Varadkar feels that getting people back in offices from August would give them time to settle into their new routine before the rush of school and college in September.

It would be done on a phased basis and would start with meetings and training.

Antigen testing would have to be considered as part of the move, according to the Tanaiste.

He now plans to ask NPHET to consider the proposal.

Meanwhile, talks are ongoing between union reps and government officials about what the office might look like post covid.
