Stating that the transition to “flexible working hours” practice is very important in such extraordinary days, Soyer said: “I am calling out to our private sector representatives: We are responsible for protecting each other's health as well as ourselves. In the light of this philosophy, your suitably qualified staff should never come to work and work from their homes. For those who need to come, starting and ending the work one hour early or late than usual will prevent the intensity of public transportation in the morning and evening hours; will significantly reduce the risk of disease transmission. ”
