Those who received the COVID-19 vaccine will be able to return to their offices from telecommuting. This is stated in the decree of the country’s chief sanitary doctor published on April 30. Today, during an online briefing of the regional communications service, Deputy Head of the Department of Sanitary and Epidemiological Control of the city of Almaty Asel Kalykova explained this measure, reports zakon.kz.
As indicated in the decree, according to the criteria for limiting the work of socio-economic facilities, in the “red” zone, 80% should be transferred to remote mode, 20% – full-time mode. In the “yellow” zone: 50% – remote mode, 50% – face-to-face mode. In the “green” zone: 30% – remote mode, 70% – face-to-face mode.
At the same time, the footnote explains that organizations, offices, subject to vaccination of employees against COVID-19, carry out activities without taking into account the requirements for the percentage of employees working remotely and in full-time work. At the same time, full-time work is allowed for all employees who have received a full course of vaccination against COVID-19 and have recovered from COVID-19 within the last 6 months.
Thus, citizens who have received a full course of vaccination are allowed to work in full-time mode without a degree of relationship to the region’s zone.
Every employer has an interest in vaccinating their teams to keep their business running at full capacity. Indeed, unvaccinated employees will go to the remote format. If we want to defeat this infection, return to normal life and create an immune layer that can defeat the coronavirus, then everyone needs to be vaccinated in a timely manner. I think that everyone will decide to get vaccinated and will not delay the process. If a person has received the first component of the vaccine, then he / she must be notified of the passage of the second component, – said A. Kalykova.
She also added that employers need to educate teams about the importance of the vaccine.
