Since the very beginning of the pandemic, Fatsa and all its affiliates have been involved not only in demanding adequate and safe conditions for the workers they represent, but also in engaging with the community as a whole by making available their hotels and other facilities that could be necessary for the care of quarantined patients. Thus, Fatsa and different union organizations agreed to offer their hotel infrastructure to face the pandemic and contain the health emergency in Argentina. The facilities will be adapted to receive low complexity cases and to have isolation areas for the mildest cases of Coronavirus.

Early on March 8, with the occurrence of the first cases in the country, Fatsa addressed the Minister of Labour of Argentina requesting the implementation of a number of emergency actions for all  public and private health sector workers who are dedicated to the care and assistance of patients affected by the coronavirus.
