Rules on workplace Covid-19 symptoms


Anyone at a workplace with respiratory symptoms that resemble those of the coronavirus disease would need to be isolated and investigated by health authorities, the Union health ministry has said in guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19 at workplaces.

The guidelines would require any employee with symptoms such as fever, cough, or breathlessness to be isolated from others in a room or area and district-level health authorities would need to assess the employee as a “suspected Covid-19” or “non-Covid-19” case.

The non-Covid-19 employee would, if required, be asked to approach a non-Covid-19 hospital while a suspected Covid-19 employee would be asked to stay under home isolation conditions if the symptoms are mild, pending a diagnostic test.
