As the spread of COVID-19 has widely affected the large area of the world population, this led many countries to impose complete lock-down all across the globe which is still going on and on. In such situation all the business, education, industries and organizational activities were completely stopped. In this scenario, the organizations give a policy to employees to the concept of “working from home (WFH)”. However, this policy does not work for every organization. Therefore, after starting physical presence of workers and employees in organization there should be proper safety measures for identifying the symptoms and causes of the deadly virus among workers. In order to do so, in this research paper, an internet of things (IoT) based solution to protect the working environment from further spread of the disease is proposed. Suspects of COVID-19 the virus are identified through various parameters using IoT framework. The general idea is to maintain a safe and sound working environment to prevent and control the further spread of the virus. It would be more useful not only preventing and controlling the spread of COVID-19 virus but also maintaining the Standard operating procedures (SoPs) in the organizations.
