Workers ‘unlikely to return to offices until September’ – Tánaiste

Workers in Ireland are unlikely to return to offices until September, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has said.

Offices have been largely closed under public health advice since the onset of the pandemic with hundreds of thousands of people across the country adapting to remote working.

The advice on working from home remains the same for now, the Tánaiste said, and that people are asked to only attend offices if it’s “absolutely necessary”.

“It’s unlikely that we’ll see a return to the office until September,” said Varadkar.

On Thursday, the Taoiseach outlined the nations opening plan for the summer months, along with confirming the vaccination targets are still on track.
