No proof of vaccination is required to return to office: Taoiseach

DUBLIN: The government has made it clear that people do not need to provide proof of vaccination in order to return to the office.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said that returning to the office means “returning to livelihoods”, and that the government does not aim to build a barrier there.

He said that vaccination should be taken voluntarily, and the public has responded positively.

Earlier, Green Party leader Eamon Ryan said that the country’s vaccination campaign is progressing well and allows for further reopenings to be considered. He said this would be done “on a hybrid basis” and in a “gradual and safe” way.

The Minister of Transport said that return to the office will be one of the first things to be considered, and that he expects many people to return to the office in September.

“We have to recognise those vaccination targets we have been meeting are phenomenal. We have pulled ahead now. We have passed out the US and are about to pass out the UK in terms of level of vaccination, and that gives us strength and the ability to do further reopenings,” Mr. Ryan said.

Return of creative and cultural sectors

Minister Ryan also indicated that the government will begin planning for the return of the creative and cultural sectors in the coming weeks.

“They are the industry that have been probably worst hit, music, arts and entertainment. We will start planning now to see how those other industries, that they too can start planning a return,” he said.

The Minister for Climate Action and Communications also said that the government plans to consider the use of Digital Covid Certificates to facilitate the resumption of live music and entertainment events. He also hinted that the return could be in the autumn.
