Written answers (Question to Health)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 719 and 752 together.

While the majority of public health measures have been lifted, the Government announced that the requirements for mask wearing in all settings where currently regulated for under Statutory Instrument and protective measures in schools and early learning and care facilities should be retained until February 28 based on public health advice. The NPHET will meet again on February 17 and will provide further advice to the Government on this issue.
