The General Community Quarantine (GCQ) is a form of quarantine with moderate and lenient measures as compared to ECQ and MECQ.
It is implemented in provinces or cities that have a moderate to low risk of COVID-19. Safety protocols are still to be enforced in establishments and LGUs should still follow a curfew to non-workers. 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 workers accredited by the DPWH to work on facilities for healthcare and for risk reduction can resume
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.
