Thank you for your reply.
Being on steroids although very low-dose puts him at risk for immunosuppressed status and he should stay home as much as possible during current pandemic, just to avoid getting in contact with anybody who is sick.

Having said that, If he does not have any symptoms and he does not have any history of sick contact, he can do the mandatory outside activities, including a work for example if he is a healthcare worker, it is recommended now that can go to work and wear the mask and make sure he practices hand hygiene and other protective measures to avoid any contact.
