Mandatory telework for all 116 municipalities

Yesterday, 16 municipalities were added to the list of municipalities where teleworking is mandatory, a measure that applies to all municipalities considered to be of high risk and very high risk. There are 116 municipalities where telework is mandatory for all activities that allow this modality.

Remember that what counts for this measure is the municipality where the workplace is located and not the place of residence, in the case of workers who carry out their professional activity outside the municipality where they reside.

In addition to these risky councils, all the others continue with the measure adopted on June 14, teleworking only recommended.

61 councils at a very high level and 55 at a high level

It should be remembered that the Government updated yesterday the risk levels of the councils, with 61 now at the maximum level of restrictions (very high), 55 at the intermediate level (high) and 29 in an alert situation, in other words, they may retreat into deconfinement in the next assessment.

At the very high risk level there are now 14 more municipalities compared to last week (47), for a total of 61. Here are the regions with more than 240 cases per 100,000 inhabitants (or 480 in low density), in two consecutive assessments .

As for the high risk, municipalities with more than 120 cases per 100,000 inhabitants (or 240 in low density), in two consecutive assessments, the increase was 12 municipalities compared to last week (43).

There are now 29 municipalities on alert, a reduction of one compared to last week (30). This means that if, in the next assessment, they return to more than 120 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, they will retreat into distrust.
