In line with the Guidance and FAQs document for Public Service Employers in relation to working arrangements during Covid-19 prepared and circulated by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, provision is made for public health sector employees to receive Special Leave with Pay should they contract Covid-19 and need to remain absent from the workplace.

According to the HSE website, Covid-19 tests and GP assessments are free of charge. This includes GP out-of-hours services.
