On March 16, 2021, Resolution No. 10/2021 of the Labor Risk Superintendence was published in the Official Gazette stipulating a special procedure and specific requirements for declaring COVID-19 as an unlisted occupational illness —a presumption set in Presidential Decree No. 39/2021 encompassing all employees who perform tasks outside their home. It also set forth the procedure to be followed before the Central Medical Commission to evaluate whether the illness is occupational once the worker’s Temporary Labor Incapacity has ended and there is confirmation that contingency is allocated to the Trust Fund for Professional Illnesses.
