Yes and from the first day of sick leave. Concretely, when an employee or civil servant of the Principality is prescribed a work stoppage providing for eviction pending the completion of a PCR screening test, he will receive daily allowances paid as appropriate by the CCSS or the SPME from the first day of shutdown. These allowances guarantee the employee 50% of his remuneration. Depending on the provisions applicable in each company, a wage maintenance measure may be provided for by the employer. The suspension of the waiting period makes it possible to support employees and civil servants in complying with the isolation measures that the loss of income suffered during this period could discourage.
