Infected employees of the city of Linz must stay at home

After the nationwide end of the corona quarantine, the city of Linz announced that infected employees must continue to stay at home.

Linz takes a special approach when dealing with corona-positive employees: After the end of the quarantine, the city decided on Monday that infected people should not appear at their workplace. This also applies to the staff in the municipal childcare and geriatric care facilities. mayor Klaus Luger (SPÖ) justified the decision by saying that they wanted to protect children, those in need of care and colleagues.

The federal ordinance only provides for traffic restrictions instead of quarantine since Monday. This means that you are no longer isolated after a positive test, but – if you are not on sick leave due to symptoms – have to go to work and wear an FFP2 mask. Excluded are people who cannot do their work with a mask or who cannot wear one for medical reasons.

Home office or time off

For the almost 3,000 employees of the Linz City Council, on the other hand, the following will apply in the future: those who are symptom-free and can do their work from home must switch to the home office. Where this is not possible, you will be released from duty. This guarantees protection for employees, especially for those who cannot work permanently with a mask or in the home office, such as in the city garden center, in street care or in kindergartens. The city also informed that no infected staff would be deployed in the city’s old people’s homes. You can only work once you have cleared the traffic restrictions. “In contrast to the past, the magistrate no longer receives any reimbursement for these voluntary exemptions,” emphasized Luger.
