The ministry also recommends making work schedules more flexible, staggering entry and exit times and avoiding face-to-face meetings.
The Ministry of Health, in agreement with the autonomous communities, has recommended measures such as teleworking and labor flexibility in the Community of Madrid and the cities of Vitoria and Labastida, both in Álava, as areas of community transmission of “high” coronavirus .
It was announced by the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, in a press conference this Monday after the extraordinary Interterritorial Council of the National Health System (SNS) that has been held by videoconference and in which he has informed that in Spain it has been passed from a containment scenario to a “reinforced containment” scenario.
This change entails the suspension from next Wednesday of classes in schools in the three high-transmission areas, a measure that the Basque Country already announced this morning and the Madrid’s community, late this afternoon.
The minister has indicated that telecommuting is advisable whenever possible, as well as the flexibility of working hours and staggered shifts.
