Athletes may not wear a mask when doing aerobic exercise, as long as there is at least three meters distance between other athletes, while athletes with severe respiratory problems are advised to avoid intense aerobic exercise with a mask.

The percentage of telework is reduced.

At the same time, according to the business code numbers (KYA) issued for the measures, in the public sector the number of employees who have been teleworking is determined based on the nature of the employees’ duties and the needs of each service, at a rate of 20% of the percentage determined by the work plan of each service until the entry comes into force, while for private companies the percentage of employees under the telework programme is set at 20%.
