Unions in one high-profile workplace are a troubled… 

In addition, staff in the Oireachtas are concerned at a lack of compliance with mask wearing in the Oireachtas workplace. We would ask that the wearing of masks within the workplace be made mandatory.

Peter Finnegan, clerk of the Dáil, wrote back to both unions 

On the issue of masks, he said: “The service respond to issues or queries raised by members in relation to compliance or other safety measures that could be considered. One such measure is the reinforcement of the wearing of face coverings in the Oireachtas complex.  “There are currently no regulatory provisions for the mandatory wearing of face coverings that would apply to the Houses of the Oireachtas. “The Department of Public Expenditure and Reform guidance and FAQs do not make wearing a face covering a mandatory requirement. “The Houses of the Oireachtas has introduced a Covid 19 Code of Conduct with an accompanying updated face covering policy to remind everyone of the behavioural standards required to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in the Houses of the Oireachtas.”
