ICOH newsletter - Volume XIX - Number 1 – May 2021 - ISSN 1795-0260

Message from the Editor

Dear Members,
COVID-19 continues to be a part of our daily lives. I sincerely hope everyone is healthy and safe.

I became sad when I found it difficult to fill out the ‘Upcoming Events’ section in our newsletter, as on-site, in-presence activities have been dramatically reduced around the globe over the past year. Despite these difficulties, I am truly thankful to those members who reported on their diverse activities.

From this issue forward, we introduce “COVID-19 and Workers”, a new section offering COVID-19-related information for workplaces. In this latest issue, we introduce two types of guidelines published by the UK Society of Medicine (SOM), which I do hope will be helpful to our readers.

I would like to extend my gratitude and best wishes to our members and all workers around the globe, in these trying pandemic times.
