Staff who experience COVID-19 symptoms and/or test positive for the virus can no longer attend the workplace and must immediately inform their supervisor of their absence. If teleworking is not possible, staff must take sick leave and submit a medical certificate.

Susceptible persons or those who have been in close contact with infected individuals are to contact their attending physician for appropriate action. Proper application of the above measures will be observed by the Safety and Radiation Protection Department (SERP), which provides advice on request regarding their on-site implementation.
