While speaking on Newstalk Breakfast, Donnelly said that the Government does not want anything to shut down in order to control the level of the disease but warned that people would have to restrict their social contacts in order to get the virus back under control.

The issue of working from home will be discussed at the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) meeting today where officials will decide on advising if the issue should be strengthened.

Currently, the Government have been incorporating a phased and cautious return to the workplace but there may be a consideration that people generally work from home.
