Oyo State Government has decided to allow Civil Servants on Grade Level 13 and above resume work on Monday, April 27, 2020.
Governor Makinde, who revealed this while addressing Newsmen at the end of a meeting of the State’s COVID-19 Task Force on Saturday, April 25, 2020, added that there are certain strict conditions that are connected to the resumption.
The Governor, in a statement issued in Ibadan by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Taiwo Adisa, noted that the following guidelines are in place to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19 within the Secretariats.
He said there will be new security measures in place which will only allow one gate to serve as entrance and exit, as all other gates will be closed.
Engr Makinde added that all meetings will be held online, as no visitor is allowed except when it is absolutely necessary.
The Governor said there will be hand washing facilities in strategic locations round the Secretariats, while one 100ml hand sanitizer and face masks will be given to each Officer.
He stated that Bush canteens around the Secretariats will remain closed, hence members of Staff are encouraged to bring their food for lunch.
Engr Makinde added that posters and banners will be in conspicuous places round the Secretariats to revalidate guidelines for resumption.
