Covid-19 (Health): Statements
Simon Harris (Wicklow, Fine Gael)
I am following the public health advice in this workplace and so, too, are Deputies for their staff. Everybody has to follow the public health advice in their workplace. There is a HSA in place that can go in and inspect workplaces. Between Monday and Tuesday of this week it carried out 190 inspections of workplaces. Every workplace has to operate in a safe way. We need to lead by example. I also think we need to find a way forward regarding this. The Oireachtas needs to be able to do its business. It cannot be beyond us to ensure that can happen.
