The COVID-19 pandemic holiday for government and private organisations workers is gradually winding up as the numbers of daily infections are getting on the downward slope, for this reason, the Delta State government has ordered the civil servants on its payroll to resume work on Wednesday, April 28.
The government of Delta State has however abolished the “Work from home” stop gap policy aimed at curtailing the spread of the deadly COVID-19.
The new order was however contained in a statement by the Commissioner for Information, Mr Charles Aniagwu, in Asaba.
He stated that the Governor of the state, Ifeanyi Okowa has approved that workers on grade levels 12 and below who had been at home as part of measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19, should return to work on Wednesday.
He added that the officers are to be in the office by 8 a.m. and close at the approved closing period on all working days.
The Commissioner reiterated that “upon resumption, the workers are to ensure full compliance with the COVID-19 pandemic preventive protocols, including maintenance of physical distancing, regular washing and/or sanitizing of hands and wearing of face masks”.
He emphasised that permanent secretaries/chief executive officers of ministries, development and agencies should ensure strict compliance with the directives.
