“However, it’s impossible to impose restrictions on workplaces forever. We should keep the wheels of our economy running,” Terawan said in a statement on the Health Ministry’s official website. “That’s why workplaces must prepare to adapt to changes amid the COVID-19 situation, also known as the new normal.”The ministerial decree requires company management to create task forces to curb the spread of the disease. They should also ensure cleanliness and hygiene at the workplace and increase the number of hand-washing facilities.The decree also advises workplaces to do away with late-night shifts or at least only assign such shifts to workers under the age of 50.Employees are required to maintain a safe physical distance at the workplace and wear masks. Their temperatures should also be checked daily. Companies are also advised to set aside a time for employees to exercise together – while adhering to physical distancing guidelines – before work starts.”By implementing these guidelines, we hope to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission at the workplace,” Terawan said.The Health Ministry announced 479 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, bringing the total number of infections nationwide to 22,750 with 1,391 fatalities.Topics : Health Minister Terawan Agus Putranto has issued new health protocols for workplaces to usher in the so-called “new normal” even as the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases continues to rise.In a ministerial decree issued on Saturday, Terawan detailed how offices and manufacturers should operate during the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB).Government Regulation (PP) No. 21/2020 requires all workplaces, except those in essential sectors, to be temporarily shut down in areas enacting the PSBB.

EL SEGUNDO — Even while his hand was hurting, while it was being drained and iced, Rajon Rondo still had his eyes. He was asked to use them.Sitting aside for the last 17 games with a fracture in his right hand, Rondo watched how the Lakers (18-13) played without him. Sometimes from the sideline, sometimes on a screen from afar. In fact when he couldn’t fly for the last four-game trip, Rondo said he missed it: not necessarily being in the game, but just alongside his teammates on the bench.“I was just frustrated I couldn’t travel with the team, but obviously the man upstairs had different plans for me as far as resting longer,” he said. “But, like I said, I missed being out there with the guys, coaching, talking trash a little bit from the sideline. That’s the only thing I missed.”The Lakers missed him and Brandon Ingram perhaps even more: The team went 1-3 on the last trip without both key pieces of their playing rotation, and in the last two losses to the Wizards and the Nets, the lack of play-making and scoring punch those two, in particular, can provide were keenly felt. Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Still, bringing back anyone healthy into the lineup helps a Lakers team that said it lost steam without its depth on the road the last week. To play the up-tempo style Walton desires, it helps to have more players in the rotation to keep the energy up, and Rondo, especially, is one of the managers who keeps the second unit humming.Rondo devotes as much time to his conditioning as anyone on the team: He has said before that he puts in three hours a day to his body, including treatment and yoga. But even as the Lakers hope he’ll keep the pace high, he’s curious to find out how long it will take to get to that level.“That’s the challenge, especially being off for five weeks: being able to push the pace as far as my cardio, my condition,” he said. “You can do as much as you can off the court and simulate things in the weight room, but it’s nothing like getting on the court and playing at that same pace at an NBA level.”But both Rondo and Ingram have watched a lot of games in the meantime. Walton has asked Ingram to watch the ball movement during games when the Lakers have played without him and to visualize his role when he gets back.He said he can still work on his shooting efficiency and being a contributor on defense.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs “How good guys were moving without the basketball, I think most of the time we were getting the best shot for the team,” he said of the details he paid attention to. “I think we did really, really good beyond the 3-point line, so we’re shooting it with more confidence.”Both Rondo and Ingram practiced with the G League affiliate South Bay Lakers during their rehab. The team released some video of Rondo leading a team huddle during one of those practices.It feeds into a part of himself that Rondo has acknowledged: He’s interested in being a coach, GM or front office official when he’s done playing.“I do love teaching the game,” he said. “But I also love dissecting the game and figuring out ways to beat people at the top.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersIt’s a relief, then, that both were full participants in practice on Thursday after a long time on the shelf (Ingram missed seven games with a sprained left ankle). While nothing is decided for sure, it puts both closer to being able to return Friday night against the New Orleans Pelicans at Staples Center.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.Both said a lot rides on how they feel when they wake up Friday morning: For Rondo, it’s the pain and swelling in his hand. For Ingram, it’s the tenderness of his ankle.“I felt really, really good today,” Ingram said. “We’ll see how it responds when I come back tonight, and try to treat it and get back in there, but it felt really good when I was practicing today.”Not all the news on the health front was good for the Lakers on Thursday: JaVale McGee’s continued flu symptoms kept him out of practice, and there’s concern that he could miss his third straight start. The Lakers haven’t won with the 7-footer out of the starting lineup, and Coach Luke Walton said the team particularly misses his shot-blocking ability (2.6 bpg).“He’s still sick: wasn’t in today, getting treatment, getting IVs,” Walton said. “That’s kinda one of the things that’s up to him and the doctors, whenever they feel he’s good enough to play, he’ll play again.”
