Prevention for our employees 

Before going to work 

  1. If you have any symptoms (cough, fever, difficulty breathing, etc.) that  could be associated with COVID-19, you should not go to work.  Contact the COVID-19 contact line in your autonomous community or  your primary medical center and follow their instructions. 
  2. If you have been in close contact or shared space without keeping the  interpersonal distance with a person affected by COVID-19, you  should not go to the workplace, even in the absence of symptoms, for  at least 14 days. 
  3. If you are vulnerable due to age, being pregnant or having previous  medical conditions, you should not go to the workplace. In case of not  being able to carry out the tasks remotely, a doctor should be  contacted to prove, when appropriate, that in fact it is necessary to  remain isolated from the workplace. 

Commuting to and from work 

  1. Whenever possible, prioritize the mobility options that best guarantee  the interpersonal distance of approximately 2 meters.
