Support and advice for business

Updated 15 June 2023

Information for businesses

The HSE no longer expects every business to consider COVID-19 in their risk assessment or to have specific measures in place. However, COVID-19 will remain a public health issue, and guidance for workplaces has been replaced with public health advice.

Employers may still choose to continue to cover COVID-19 in their risk assessments; there is a requirement to protect those who will come into contact with the virus due to their work activity, and businesses may wish to consider protection for those staff or customers people who may be at higher risk such as those who are immunosuppressed.
