Concerns of covid rules from tomorrow

Concerns of covid rules from tomorrow - There are fresh concerns ahead of changes to covid rules from tomorrow February 1st. From Wednesday February 1st, most of the exceptional measures linked to covid will disappear for example the end of "contact tracing" by the Health Insurance, end of compulsory isolation in the event of a positive test and end of automatic work stoppages which entitle compensation without having to go through a doctor. Certain provisions are still maintained such as, the TousAntiCovid application which will continue to provide a vaccination status and the partial activity scheme for the most vulnerable employees is extended for at least one month.

However, the representative of the Renaloo association which represents employees has called for the partial activity system to remain beyond one month for the most fragile as long as there is a covid threat. Declaring that if not it would be a “professional death” for some employees.
