Employers are required to comply with the daily emergency regulations issued by the government prohibiting crowdedness and enforcing social distancing. The Ministry of Health is directing workplaces, who are permitted to keep operating, to prepare to transfer the work from home and to conduct remote meetings through conference calls. Employers must instruct workers to check their temperature before coming to work in the morning and avoid the use of public transport as much as possible. Employees must be required to wash hands when they arrive and when they leave work, and at most every 3 hours. Employers must provide tissue/toilet paper and sanitizers to all employees. The surfaces of the workplace must be cleaned frequently. The recommendation is to clean and disinfect surfaces using 70% alcohol-based disinfectants or chlorine solution (household bleach). Workplaces are allowed to operate as long as there is no gathering of more than 10 people and there is a minimum of 2 meters between employees in all areas (See Guidelines).
