The Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi led government of Enugu State has ordered all civil servants in the state to resume work next Monday, August 3, 2020.
The directive was contained in a statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Simon Uchenna Ortuanya.
In the statement, the state government advised returning civil servants to observe all Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) protocols for containment of the spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), “including hand washing with soap, use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer, compulsory use of face shield/mask and maintaining social distancing”.
It is instructive to note that following the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, the Enugu State Government, directed all civil servants in the state to work from their homes since March 23, 2020, as part of measures to contain the spread of the viral disease.
The state government has been paying salaries of civil servants, as and when due, since the lockdown.
