Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar launched an updated ‘Work Safely Protocol’ to ‘assist employers in reopening safely’.
He confirmed that vaccination will remain voluntary.
Via RTÉ News:
He said the protocol will guide employers on how to manage unvaccinated workers.
Today’s document incorporates the latest public health advice, and contains guidelines on antigen testing, vaccinations and ventilation to assist employers in reopening the economy while keeping workers and customers safe.
Mr Varadkar said they now had a “Government-endorsed” report on antigen testing, and acknowledged that many employers were already using it.
“I am encouraging more to do so,” he added.
CMO Dr Tony Holohan says NPHET strongly recommends against the public buying and using antigen tests. pic.twitter.com/RLKDlOzg39
