Due to the global pandemic, Colombia has established a preventive social isolation with some exceptions. In order to protect workers' sources of income, it has adopted various measures to guarantee job stability, employees' labour income and informal workers’ rights, while considering the opinion of the Social Partners. Therefore, and despite that the Colombian government’s reaction has not completely covered the relevant ILO’s International Labour Standards yet, there is clear and daily action to adapt the norms and institutions in the country in order to thrive after the COVID-19 outbreak.
