In the memo directed to all heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies, the HoS said the workers would be allowed to work three times in a week and closing time would be 2pm.
She stressed the observance of social distancing, use of face masks, hand sanitisers, and good general hygiene at all government offices while noting that all Federal Secretariats have been decontaminated and efforts were ongoing to do same in other public offices.
She said, “Further to Mr President’s broadcast on a phased and gradual easing of the lockdown measures occasioned by COVID-19, officers on GL 14 and above and those on essential services are hereby directed to resume work with effect from Monday, May 4, 2020 in the first instance.
“Offices are to open three times a week – Monday, Wednesday and Friday – and close at 2pm on each day.”
The circular further advised affected officers to limit the number of visitors they received and hand washing facilities should be located at every strategic location within their office premises.
They were also urged to make use of face masks with regular washing and sanitising of hands.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state narrated the ordeal he endured in isolation while undergoing treatment for COVID-19 and how he contracted the virus.
El-Rufai disclosed on Tuesday, April 28, that he suffered serious headaches and fever within the first week of his isolation.
Speaking in a Hausa live media chat with selected radio stations in Kaduna, the governor said though he was not certain as to when or where exactly he contracted the virus, he suspected that he picked it up from Abuja where he attended several meetings.
He said he did not have symptoms of cough or other respiratory problems but noted that he suffered excruciating headaches and fever which he said he will not wish for his enemies.
He noted that though no member of his immediate family had tested positive for coronavirus, he said he infected a colleague, one of his drivers, his domestic staff and a close friend.
The governor noted that he was fine on the first two days in isolation but by the third day, he was hit by a serious fever that lasted two to three days adding that he couldn’t read or do anything and even found it difficult to pray.
