Self-isolation laws may be relaxed for health workers in Ireland

DUBLIN: The government is considering giving concessions to COVID prevention laws, such as self-isolation to health workers.

The HSE and the government are considering the NPHET recommendation for granting exemptions to nurses and health care workers as part of an effort to reduce stress in the health sector.

COVID-19 sufferers are currently considered to be three months immune, but NPHET had recommended that this can be considered for six months. Therefore, NPHET makes it clear that you do not need to isolate yourself even if you are in close contact with someone who has confirmed COVID-19 for up to six months after recovering from the virus.

It is hoped that this policy change will help ease the pressure on health care. There was a huge shortage of staff in the health service due to illness and self-isolation of employees.
