Association BDEW: If necessary, key personnel released from quarantine

Involve industry representatives in regional crisis teams

As a last step, a possible release of key personnel from the quarantine would also make sense so that those affected could come to work, explained Andreae. “Such a so-called quarantine corridor would of course only apply to people who are able to work and who are in quarantine as contact persons or as infected people without symptoms.”

But it is also important that representatives of the industry are included in regional crisis teams, says Andreae. Clear, uniform regulations are also needed, which the health authorities can implement unbureaucratically. “One lesson from the first waves of the pandemic is that the inconsistency of specific local regulations is a major challenge for companies, especially if they operate in several federal states, districts or municipalities,” said Andreae.
