C6: Stay at home requirements - recommend not leaving houseDetails
State of emergency came into effect on 12 March 2020. Although the government/ crisis management team did not impose restrictions on people leaving their homes, the law on health and safety at work requires that employers take into account any risks to their employees' health, and allow work from home where appropriate. Most employers in both the public and private sector have thus asked their employees to work from home. The public information campaign has also emphasised the importance of staying home.
