Commercial establishments and facilities where economic activities take place must comply with a series of measures that guarantee:

Additionally, companies and establishments that begin activities after the issuance of this decree must register on the platform: www.bógota.gov.co/reactivacion-economica.

Employers must aim to continue teleworking or working from home for employees or contractors whose presence is not essential at the workplace.

Under no circumstances will the development of activities in bars, discotheques, dance halls and similar places be permitted, nor will events of a public or private nature in closed spaces involving massive crowds of people.

Finally, the DAR (Detection, Isolation and Reporting) program was implemented based on the verification of risk factors and suspicious or confirmed cases of COVID-19 among workers and their reporting to the ARL (Administradoras de Riesgos Laborales), the EAPB (Entidades Administradoras de Planes de Beneficios) and the link https://covidl9.saludcapital.gov.co/index.php/empresas.

The EAPBs will take tests and deliver the results within 48 hours to contribute to the interruption of transmission chains.
