The Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) means that there is a restriction of movement of people unless it is out of necessity such as buying food. Frontliners such as the health sector are also exempted from this rule. Here is a summary of the guidelines released by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) for your information.
Construction for emergency works, flood control, and other disaster risk reduction and rehabilitation works, sewerage projects, water service facilities projects, and digital works are allowed.
In compliance with safety protocols, a “no mask, no entry” rule should always be observed. Frequent sanitation and handwashing are encouraged and touching of surfaces and the face should be avoided. Stricter safety protocols are to be followed for higher-risk occupations, industries, and spaces.
For safe distancing, a 1 meter apart rule should always be observed — workspaces should be reconfigured to practice this. Workers who show symptoms are to discontinue work immediately. In addition, markers observing the 1 meter apart rule should be placed in public places.
Private companies should adhere to return-to-work protocols. Employees are to work from home as default with exceptions of on-site work. Private shuttles should be provided and PCR confirmatory testing should be performed on employees.
A minimum of 50% of your employees are required to work from home. Allowed onsite workers should not exceed 50% of the total population of your employees.
