The Government has decided to reintroduce temporary measures regarding medical certificates for suspected disease carriers from 27 December 2021. This means that employees who are suspected carriers of COVID-19, and hence are not allowed to go their workplace, no longer need to show a medical certificate to obtain their salary. Nevertheless, employees still need to certify in writing that they have been given rules of conduct stating the are not allowed to go to the workplace due to suspected infection.
This could happen if a family member or other household contact has confirmed COVID-19.
This decision regarding medical certificates only affects employees who have work tasks that cannot be conducted from home.
Employees who are healthy and can work from home should do so in consultation with their manager. Employees who are too sick to work must report sick leave. Employees who tend to sick children must report care of a sick child.
These temporary regulations apply until 31 March 2022.
