Provide Work from Home

But all the processes could be carried out while making sanitization mandatory. Keep sanitization facilities like temperature checks, scanning, and hand sanitizers available to your employees so that they feel comfortable while working. Also, try to make seatings done at distance in order to maintain social distancing.
