At this Official letter, Vietnam Social Security recommends that the Ministry of Labor - Invalids and Social Affairs agrees that persons who are subject to medical isolation because of suspicious of being infected with coronavirus are entitled to enjoy the sickness regime during the isolation period. Currently, Article 25 of the Law on social insurance only regulates the sickness regime for employees taking leave due to sickness rather than the sickness regime for employees subject to medical isolation due to suspicious of infection of infectious disease.
Regarding the dossier for enjoyment of the sickness regime for persons undergoing isolation at home (without the certificate of isolation granted by hospitals or medical facilities), Vietnam Social Security recommends that medical stations of the places where the employees reside grant the certificate of leave under the social insurance regime, based on the approved List of persons subject to isolation.
