The Government greatly appreciates the additional efforts of essential workers, front line staff and all those working during this difficult time.
They are making a vital contribution to the State-wide response to the COVID-19 crisis.
However, currently, available resources are being focused on new initiatives to support those who are no longer in employment or who will have reduced income in the coming weeks and months as well as measures seeking to support employers in retaining staff on the payroll.
