Oct 28 20:08 2020 Rea Setia Print This Article

The novel strain of Coronavirus is possibly one of the biggest problems that the world has faced in decades. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the virus has affected almost 216 countries with more than 11 million cases reported all around the globe. Moreover, it has also led to more than 5 lakh deaths (as per 30th June 2020) worldwide.

While the virus compelled most countries to impose nationwide lockdowns for months,Guest Posting many nations including India have now begun to ease the restrictions in an attempt to restart the economy. In such a scenario, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has issued guidelines to help companies resume their business activities and for employees to return to work. As the threat of the virus is still very much there, it is highly essential for people to follow strict and uncompromising rules in order to ensure a safe working environment at all times. 

Here are some important tips that one should adhere to when returning to work post lockdown:

  1. Follow all the guidelines issued by the Government

The Ministry of Home Affairs issued the new unlock 2.0 guidelines on 1st July 2020 that eased some of the restrictions imposed during unlock 1.0. However, this does not mean that the risk of virus transmission is low. While employees return to work, they are suggested to follow all the mandatory guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW). These guidelines include all safety measures concerning disinfection and sanitization procedures, emergency procedures, and basic preventive measures.

  1. Conduct regular temperature checks

Fever is one of the primary and most common symptoms associated with COVID-19. Thus, companies should make regular temperature checks mandatory in their office premises. Office authorities should conduct regular temperature checks of the employees at the entrance points itself. In case any employee is suffering from fever, he/she should be sent back home immediately.  

  1. Sanitize and wash your hands on a regular basis

Washing hands properly with soap and water or using an alcohol-based sanitizer is the “basic” yet most important preventive measure against virus transmission. Not only should people carry sanitizers while travelling, office authorities should also make sanitization facility available for all the employees.

  1. Use mask and gloves

People are suggested to wear a mask at all times, whenever they go outside. Masks are the most essential preventive gear that can restrict the virus from entering the body via mouth or nose. In addition, one should also wear gloves in order to avoid virus transmission from infected surfaces.    

  1. Maintain social distancing

As per the MoHFW guidelines, people at work are essentially required to follow social distancing norms at all times. Employees should maintain a distance of at least one meter from each other in order to avoid any possible chance of virus transmission.

India currently stands at the 3rd position in the list of the worst Coronavirus affected countries. According to the data furnished by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), the country has reported more than 7 lakh confirmed cases and more than 20,000 COVID-19 related deaths (till 7st July 2020). Unfortunately, the number of cases is increasing day-by-day and the situation is only going to get worse with the country entering the 2nd phase of unlocking. Thus, people are suggested to take all the necessary preventive measures in order to keep themselves and their loved ones safe from the virus.
