Ecuador’s parliament applies gradual return to face-to-face work

Quito, Jun 22 (Prensa Latina) Members of the National Assembly of Ecuador are assessing on Tuesday to implement a new plan to gradually return to face-to-face and blended activities, to avoid Covid-19 contagions.

The plan was approved by the Legislative Administration Council (CAL), based on the safety guidelines established by the national Emergency Operations Committee (COE).

According to the plan, 40 parliamentarians, among them presidents and vice-presidents of the permanent legislative committees, as well as those of the CAL, are expected to return to the headquarters of the legislature.

As planned, the remaining assembly members will return from September to December.

While Covid-19 emergency lasts, if necessary, minimum face-to-face work teams will be maintained and they could not exceed the maximum percentage established by the national COE.
