Employees who are quarantined don’t necessarily have free time. This is regulated in the Infection Protection Act and often additionally in the employer’s regulations. Only those who actually get sick and have a doctor’s certificate don’t have to work while in quarantine or seclusion – as it’s called in bureaucratese. Depending on their work and the technical equipment provided by the employer, all others have to work while in quarantine. Employees who usually work with machinery or in a laboratory can get assigned other tasks by their employer, which they can then do from home.
