The Federal Government has directed civil servants on Grade Level 10 and below to resume duty with effect from Monday .
It, however , said no worker would be allowed entry into any government offices without face masks .
The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation , Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan , gave the directive in a circular dated October 16 , 2020 .
The circular , a copy of which was obtained by our correspondent on Friday , was titled ‘Resumption of officers on Grade Level 10 and below’ and was addressed to permanent secretaries and heads of Ministries , Departments and Agencies among others .
Since the lockdown declared by the Federal Government to curtail the further spread of COVID -19 , only civil servants on Grade Level 12 and above as well as those on essential duties have been going to work .
But the Presidential Task Force on COVID – 19 had on Thursday announced another phase of eased lockdown in which it said all civil servants were free to resume .
Folasade -Esan , in the circular , however , directed that apart from the compulsory use of face masks , efforts should be made by MDAs to avoid overcrowding in offices .
She asked that the civil servants should be in their offices every working day from 8 am to 4 pm .
The circular read , “Following Mr President ’s approval of the recommendations of the Presidential Task Force on COVID -19 , officers on Grade Level 10 and below are hereby directed to resume duty every working day ( Monday to Friday ) with effect from Monday , October 19 , 2020.
“Also , the officers are to be in the office by 8am and close by 4pm daily . In resuming work daily , the officers are to ensure full compliance with the directives and advice on the COVID – 19 pandemic preventive measures, including the maintenance of physical distancing , regular washing and/ or sanitising of hands , and wearing of face masks .
