National lockdown-exit protocol for businesses

The national lockdown exit protocol for businesses to guarantee the safety and health of employees intended for employers has just been published by the Ministry of Labor.

The resumption of business activities is essential to avoid the collapse of the economy. However, this resumption must necessarily take place in a way that ensures the protection of employees’ health.

To this end, the French Ministry of Labor has released a national lockdown exit protocol to help and support companies and associations, whatever their size, activity and geographical location, to resume their business operations while ensuring the protection of their employees’ health through the application of universal rules.

This protocol is divided into 7 distinct parts and provides details on:

  • recommendations in terms of distancing in open spaces;
  • flow management;
  • personal protection equipment;
  • covid-19 testing;
  • protocol for the management of a symptomatic person and his/her close acquaintances;
  • temperature taking;
  • cleaning and disinfection of the premises.
