COVID-19: Ekiti directs junior workers to resume March 8
The Ekiti State government has directed officers from grade levels 02-12 to resume work in their respective offices following the curtailment of the COVID-19 pandemic in the state.
In a bid to stop the spread of the second wave of COVID-19, the government had last year ordered the junior workers to stay and work from home.
In a statement, on Tuesday, the Head of Service, Mrs Peju Babafemi noted that the respective workers are to resume on Monday, March 2021.
She said: “Considering the progress made so far in curtailing the spread of the virus as well as the Federal and State Governments’ plans for vaccination, His Excellency, Dr John Kayode Fayemi, has directed all Public Officers on Grade Levels 02-12 hitherto working from home to resume work on Monday 8, March 2021.
“However, all officers are to continue to take personal responsibility for their health, including proper use of masks (covering nose and mouth), regular hand washing and sanitiSing, as well as social distancing. Avoidance of large gatherings should be strictly observed.”
She further said that “All accounting officers should ensure compliance with the above directives in their various MDAs.”
