Stay at home: The latest public health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 - Updated Essential Services List
Following the escalation of restrictions on business and personal movement in relation to the COVID-19 outbreak, the government has released an updated list of essential services which will permitted to remain open during the restricted period (currently until April 12th).
The government has decided that everyone should stay at home until 12 April 2020, except for the following situations:
All employees should work remotely from home if at all possible.
The purpose of the document is to provide guidance to employers and employees as to what constitutes an essential service where workers cannot work from home and have no option but to travel to work.
In addition, workers in the categories of essential services set out in the full appendix are permitted to travel to work, subject to compliance with the guidance below.
If you carry out an activity that is necessary for the continued provision of an essential service by another organisation or you are part of an essential supply chain, you should continue to carry out that activity. To the maximum extent possible, that should be done remotely.
The government also recognises that many companies in Ireland are critical to global supply chains that are responding to the COVID-19 crisis, and many companies also perform critical global roles in other aspects of medicine, as well as security, cyber, cloud and data centre infrastructure. It is intended that these essential global roles are encompassed within this national guidance.
