COVID-19 – change of conditions for work from the office from June 8, 2021


Let us inform you about about the change of government measure issued on June 7th , 2021, an extraordinary measure is being amended, which imposes obligations on employers to comply with measures to prevent the COVID-19 infection while working in the offices.

  • With the date of effectivity on June 8th , 2021, colleagues are allowed to work in the office (workplace at the table, meeting room) without the obligation to have protected respiratory tract with a medical mask / respirator, in case of colleagues who are working in this one place without the presence of a other person than co-worker, ie Tesco colleagues in a specified number for the given space and at the marked workplaces. When there is an external employee or a visitor (eg. a supplier’s representative, service, cleaning worker, etc.) in one meeting room with colleagues, the obligation to have protected the respiratory tract with a medical face mask/ respirator remains unchanged.
  • In the case of movement around the office in all common areas for colleagues (kitchens, printers, corridors, toilets, etc.), the obligation to use respiratory protection remains unchanged.

We would also like to inform you that in connection with the obligation of testing of employees at employers, this obligation is still valid according to the current issued measures until June 30, 2021.

Therefore, we would like to ask colleagues to continue to follow the set process of testing with antigenic self-tests, or to send information about an externally performed antigen / PCR test, or a certificate of performed vaccination (1st and 2nd dose of vaccine) on email: The exception also applies to colleagues who have demonstrably suffered COVID-19 in the past 180 days. If necessary, the EU Certificate can be easily obtained and downloaded from the Citizen’s Vaccination Portal, operated by the Ministry of Health at the link HERE.
