HSE CEO, Paul Reid, has called for a mixture of working from home and at the office to be put in place.


This comes as Tanaiste Leo Varadkar wants to see a return to offices in August - ahead of the schools reopening in September.


It is believed that NPHET will now consider the proposal to see if it's viable.


Paul Reid says there needs to be a balance struck between working at the office and from home:


"The more we get back to [...] the society we had in 2019, the better if we can do it in a safe way. It is a mental health issue for people as well,  and people at work is important for mental health, mixing with other employees, but I think we're going to see a hybrid for the next good few months, of some element of people getting to work and a continued element of people working from home."
