Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade & Employment, Leo Varadkar yesterday reminded employers that all staff who can do so, should continue to work from home while current restrictions remain in place.  
 
The Government has warned that this is a significant week in Ireland's fight against the pandemic as thousands of construction workers go back to work and all pupils return to school. With daily new cases still in the mid-hundreds, the Tanaiste warned that there remains a high risk of new outbreaks occurring if large numbers of people return to the workplace.

In a statement this week, Varadkar said, "There is clear evidence that some people are drifting back to the office or the workplace, and new data from the CSO this week shows that more people are moving beyond 10km of their homes. I particularly want to remind employers that staff members should not be pressurised to return to work. Daily case numbers remain high, as do the numbers in ICU."

He added, "My message to everyone is that working from home has played a huge part in containing Covid-19. It will be one of the most effective tools as we enter the next stage. I know a lot of people are tired of working from home and are keen to see colleagues again, but we have to stick with this for a few more months. When we go back to the office, we want it to be in a safe and sustainable way. We are just not at that point yet."
