Background: The coronavirus, which is now spreading around the world as a pandemic, has caused more than 30 million cases and nearly 1000,000 deaths worldwide. No vaccine has been used against the virus so far and there are no specific drugs to cure the patients. This paper examines the impact of coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic on employees’ health, either in governmental or private sector. The aim of this study was to protect staffs against disease in pandemic conditions by identifying the main ways to keep employee healthy during COVID-19 pandemic in different scenarios.

Methods: This paper is a perspective article and different scenario were assessed in order for consideration of employee health.

Results: Two scenarios could be considered first, when, the vaccine against Covid-19 is not available for prevention and the second scenario is that the vaccine is available for all in the world. In both cases, maintaining the health of the staff will be different. If the coronavirus disease will continue to occur in humans as long as access to a safe vaccine is not possible, emphasis on health standards, social distance and wearing the mask is the only way to deal with this dangerous disease. Even, with preparation of vaccine the health standards, social distancing, and wearing of mask must be continued in any situations.

Conclusion: The high level of health for employee must be considered by governments in different scenarios.
