However, the standard details that each governor may suspend any of these activities in his province within its territorial competence, in whole or in part. In turn, each province must issue the necessary regulations for the development of the excepted activities, being able to limit the scope of the same to certain geographical areas or to certain municipalities or establish specific requirements for their development, according to Télam.
Along the same lines, exceptions may also be withdrawn by the Chief of Staff at any time and under any circumstances, “according to the evaluation carried out, with the intervention of the national health authority, of the evolution of the epidemiological situation.”
“The activities and services mentioned in article 1 are authorized to function, subject to the implementation and compliance with the health protocols that each jurisdiction establishes, in compliance with the health and safety recommendations and instructions of the national authorities,” details the article 2.
And he continues: “In all cases, the organization of shifts, if applicable, and the modes of work and transportation that guarantee the necessary distance and hygiene measures to reduce the risk of contagion of the new coronavirus must be guaranteed.”
Elsewhere, the rule states that employers “they must guarantee the hygiene and safety conditions established by the respective jurisdictions to preserve the health of workers”. The people reached by this administrative decision must process the Unique Enabling Certificate for Circulation.
The idea of the first president is that the isolation extends, at least, for 15 days from April 27. Although, as a way of expressing their political support, the governors will be in favor of that measure, at the bottom, they are seeking flexibility. Some point out that they have few cases and that, in a controlled manner, more activities could be enabled to avoid a further fall in the economy.
For now, Alberto Fernández knows of the crisis in the construction sector since before the quarantine, especially due to the lack of payments to companies by the State and the uncertainty about what would happen with the projects that had to be launched. .
Therefore, he anticipated that he wants to reactivate public works., but clarified to unions and businessmen that the problem is the pandemic and that the health of the people must be preserved, that there is no risk of infection for the workers and that progress must be made with the provincial protocols and with the priorities of the works .
Thus, it is expected that after the second stage of compulsory isolation ends, there will be works that can be started again in consensus with governors and mayors.
