According to a list of guidelines seen by The Irish Times, new contact recruits will be rostered for work after shadowing other contact-tracking staff at one center.

Correspondence to recruiters “If you have a laptop, bring it. You may not need one while doing Shadow, but we still need one to work with as we are still waiting for HSE laptops ”.

On Tuesday night, an HSE spokesman said recruits would be asked to work on their laptops and that they would not be able to access the tracker system.

“We have asked some new contact-tracer recruits to bring their own laptops for training at one of our centers,” the spokesman said.
