The Federal Government has order civil servants on Levels 12 and 13 to resume full duties.
This was contained in a circular issued by Folashade Yemi-Esan, the Head of Civil Serve of the Federation, on Monday.
She said civil servants on essential duties must also resume. Only workers on Level 14 had been at work due to measures in place to control the spread of COVID-19.
But Yemi-Esan, in the circular, added that all workers resuming for work will henceforth work from Monday to Friday and from 8 am to 4 pm.
“Following Mr President’s approval of the recommendation of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, officers on Grade Levels 12 and 13, and those on essential services are hereby directed to be in the office every working day (Monday to Friday) with effect from Monday, August 10, 2020.
“Also, the officers and those affected by earlier circulars on resumption of duty are now to resume by 8 am and close by 4 pm daily,” the circular said.
“Permanent Secretaries/Chief Executive Officers are to define the officers performing essential services in their MDAs.
“However, in doing so, consideration must be given to the health implication of the number to recall for duties in the light of the extant guidelines on the measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.”
Yemi-Esan asked the officers to ensure full compliance with the directives and advice on the COVID-19 pandemic preventive measures, including maintenance of physical distancing, regular washing and/or sanitising of hands and wearing of face masks.
She added that where the number of staff is large, Permanent Secretaries and Chief Executive Officers may consider making rosters.
