The Novel Coronavirus pandemic has led to a long lockdown in India. The end of the lockdown does not imply the end of the pandemic but assumes that the rapid spread of the pandemic would have abated to some extent. The risk of infection, however, will remain for some time to come. 

The advisory document is to advise WaterAid India (WAI) staff, partners, and field staff on the precautions they need to take to protect themselves from COVID-19 while undertaking work tasks, including working in the office, travel (domestic and international), field visits, organising and attending meetings and workshops.
