- Assign medical teams of units to cooperate with mobile medical stations in industrial parks, industrial complexes (if any) or medical stations of communes, wards where the units are operating

Step 3:

- Assign for implementation: medical teams of the units

Step 4:

- Cease operation of the area where F0 is located in order to sterilize and test all F1 (depending on the scale of infection cluster), and investigate t o determine scale and nature of infection cluster:

+ F0 is located in 1 line of manufacture: handle on the scale of line of manufacture

+ F0 is located in 2 lines of manufacture or more in the same workshop: handle on the scale of the workshop

+ F0 is located in 2 lines of manufacture or more in different workshops without any epidemiological relationship: handle on the scale of each line of manufacture

+ F0 is located in 2 lines of manufacture or more in different workshops with epidemiological relationship: handle on the scale of the entire manufacturing facility

- Identify F1 (individuals who have made close contact with F0 in under 2 m for longer than 15 minutes such as working next to F0 in line of manufacture, sitting in the same table, etc.) and conduct quick antigen test (group sampling must not consist of more than 3 individuals)

- Monitor F1:

+ In case at least 80% of workers of a manufacturing facility has been adequately vaccinated: all F1 are allowed to work and must be tested on the 3rd and 7th day and every 7th day fterwards until no more F0 is found; adopt measures for preventing infection for household members, especially individuals with high risk (individuals above the age of 65, individuals above the age of 50 and having underlying medical conditions, overweight individuals with BMI > 5, pregnant women, and women during the 2 weeks postpartum); minimize external contact until supervision period expires.

+ In case less than 80% of workers of a manufacturing facility is adequately vaccinated:

• For F1 who have not been adequately vaccinated: quarantine at home (if eligible) or in quarantine facilities for 14 days; and test again on the 14th day.

• For F1 who have been adequately vaccinated: act similar to the case where at least 80% of workers of the manufacturing facility has been adequately vaccinated

- Assign:

+ Medical teams and Steering Committee for Epidemic Management of the units to organize handling

+ Medical stations and medical centers to assist the units in implementation; if necessary, request assistance of hospitals (in conducting tests, etc.), CDC of the City (in managing complicated infection cluster)
