MOSCIOW: The work-from-home requirement for 30% of employees stops being mandatory and becomes advisory in Moscow, Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said.
"Starting today, the mandatory work-from-home requirement for at least 30% of employees of enterprises and organizations, including workers older than 65 and citizens suffering from chronic diseases, is cancelled. At the same time, we recommend that employers further maintain the work-from-home regime whenever that does not harm the activity of organizations," Sobyanin said in his blog on Friday.
The relevant order was published on the official web portal of the Moscow city administration.
Employers are still compelled to take employees' temperature before work and to prevent employees with acute respiratory infection symptoms from accessing their work places.
The requirement of taking temperature every four hours and regularly testing 10% of employees for Covid-19 once in every 15 days is now cancelled, Sobyanin said.
