Recommendations and Regulations
Obligation to cover your mouth and nose – especially with a face mask, a respirator or a scarf – applies also in workplaces.
Within the obligation of wearing a face mask while working in workplaces, some people may have an exemption. This includes nursery teachers, health workers if it is necessary to perform the first aid (e.g. resuscitation), public transport drivers, judges, advocates, prosecutors, experts and interpreters during the trials, performers, hosts, news readers, and persons who work with heat within the 3rd and the 4th burden degree (glassmakers, metallurgist etc.).
You can also remove your face mask if you work in one place and when there are no colleagues or other people within the safe distance of at least 2m away from you (both conditions need to be met at the same time). E.g. while being alone in your office at least 2m away from other people – the face mask can be removed. Please wear your face mask in all other circumstances.
If possible, please work from home. Workplaces are one of the most common settings where people get infected by COVID-19. If it is impossible for you to work from home, please wear a face mask and follow basic hygiene measures.
