A new report published Thursday in the New England Journal of Medicine outlines what businesses and other institutions can do to continue operations safely amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Employees and customers must do all the well-documented things that are known to help protect against the spread of disease: frequent hand washing, wearing masks, staying apart and making sure people stay home if they feel unwell. But the report advises employers to take disciplinary action against employees who do not comply with these guidelines.

The report, written by health lawyer Mark Barnes from Ropes & Gray LLP and Dr. Paul Sax, head of infectious diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, also advised employers to offer or extend sick leave benefits to encourage workers to remain at home when they feel sick.

Businesses can also place partitions or barriers between workers or between employees and customers and increase ventilation and air circulation, advises Barnes and Sax.

A staggered work schedule can make employees safer, as can accommodation for workers with a higher risk of getting a serious virus, including the option to work from home. Learning institutions must offer distance learning opportunities for students with underlying medical conditions.

There must be coordination between businesses and local governments about reopening schools, day care and day care centers.

“The resumption of child care and school operations is an important factor, because many employees are unable, given the family situation, to return to work if education and child care for children and parents or family members with disabilities remain closed,” the report said.

The use of mass transportation, as well as social, religious and leisure time for workers outside working hours are other big challenges that businesses face when they reopen, according to the report, which notes that many businesses have adopted daily temperature checks and health questionnaires to determine if employees or the customer represents the risk. For colleges or residential schools, the report recommends institutions provide a place where students can isolate before traveling home.

Regarding workplace testing, the report notes “promises to control transmission at work but also has serious limitations,” adding that when widely available, “antigen tests may have greater specificity but may have lower sensitivity” than with another test. Once there is an increase in testing capacity, employers can also use contact tracking at work, the report said.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
