The Federal Government has warned federal civil servants not to flout guidelines put in place to flatten the COVID-19 curve in the country.
This was contained in a circular signed by the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan.
Yemi-Esan reminded the workers of two previous circulars issued in March and April 2020, on the measures to guide against further spread of Coronavirus.
However, in the circular, she noted that â€œthe flow of both the staff and visitors to offices is very high which, sadly, indicates that the directives in the circulars in reference were being observed in breach.
â€œIt has, therefore, become very important to reiterate that only officers on GL14 and above; and officers performing essential services, are to report for duty. As much as possible, other categories of officers should be encouraged to work from home.â€
Yemi-Esan also warned Permanent Secretaries/Chief Executive Officers to reduce the number of physical meetings in the MDAs.
