Employers in Bahrain must provide workers with face masks

Employers in Bahrain must provide workers with face masks, a Labour and Social Development Ministry circular has stipulated.

Workers must also have their temperature taken upon entering the work site, any time they leave and reenter during the day, and when leaving.

If they have a high temperature, employers must call 444 for medical care and closer monitoring.

Where possible, employers must implement a home-based work policy, especially for mothers.

The number of workers on site must be reduced, and employees must be kept at a distance of at least two metres from one another.

Employees must also have a private space of four square metres in employer-provided accommodation.

The new rules are part of precautionary measures being taken to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Bahrain.

All residents must now wear face masks in public, and there are limits on the number of customers allowed into shops.

If you don’t have a face mask, don’t forget to check out the Ministry of Health’s guide on how to make one yourself here.
