Re: Coronavirus

According to 20 Minutes, Berset wishes to introduce the following on 13th January.

"Home office: Employers are obliged to arrange home office wherever this is possible due to the nature of the activity and can be implemented with reasonable effort. If home office is arranged, however, the employer does not owe the employee any compensation for expenses (electricity costs, contributions to rental costs, etc.).
- Closure of shops and markets for non-daily needs: Shops and markets are closed. Shopping shops and markets offering goods for daily use are excluded. It is still possible to collect ordered goods on site ("click and collect").
- Private events: A maximum of ten persons from a maximum of two households may participate in private events. Children are also counted towards this number.
- Crowds in public spaces: Crowds in public spaces are limited from fifteen to ten people.
- Further measures at the workplace: Where home office is not or only partially possible, further measures at the workplace will be enacted: For the protection of workers indoors, masks will now be compulsory wherever more than one person is present in a room. A large distance between workplaces in the same room is no longer sufficient. Employers must also document in writing the measures adopted to protect workers and to enforce the distance and hygiene rules - after consulting the workers. This increases transparency and also the involvement of employees.
- Protection of employees at particular risk: For certain persons, infection with the coronavirus can be more dangerous than average, as the disease can be severe or even fatal, especially for them.
The disease can be severe or even fatal for them in particular. Particularly at-risk persons should therefore be specifically protected without discriminating against them. To this end, the right to home office or equivalent protection at the workplace or leave of absence for particularly at-risk persons is to be introduced, as in spring 2020."

I thought the protection for employees at particular risk might be of interest to a few people here.
