Corona pandemic: Minister Heil warns against strict infection protection at the workplace because of Omikron

Exclusive

The omicron wave is rolling: Minister of Labor Hubertus Heil warns companies to have strict 3G controls and work from home wherever possible and is in favor of compulsory vaccination.

In view of the emerging Omikron variant, Federal Labor Minister Hubertus Heil has called for strict compliance with protective measures at the workplace and has spoken out in favor of general vaccination. “For those who have to work in the company, there are effective hygiene rules that must be observed,” said the SPD politician to our editorial team.

Hubertus Heil insists on mobile working and home office

“I expect compliance with the 3G rule in the workplace,” stressed the minister. “Right now, mobile working and home office must be offered and taken advantage of wherever possible,” Heil added, given the increased risk of infection from the new virus variant.

SPD Minister Heil: Compulsory vaccinations will lead us out of the crisis

For long-term protection at the workplace, the SPD spoke out in favor of introducing a general obligation to vaccinate. “If we want to overcome the pandemic and also protect ourselves from further waves, then we have to vaccinate and boost where possible,” emphasized Heil. “This is the only way for us as a society to get through this crisis,” said the minister. “That’s why I’m also in favor of general vaccination.”

Minister of Labor Heil wants to examine the extension of short-time work

With a view to the Omikron variant, Heil also announced that it would consider extending the short-time work scheme beyond March. “Short-time work has proven to be a viable bridge in this pandemic, the feared mass unemployment has not materialized,” said Heil. “We will therefore monitor the situation closely, both in terms of the pandemic and the economy, and then act accordingly,” he said.
