Bhubaneswar: The Odisha government on Monday directed all departments and sub-ordinate offices to function fully from May 19, 2020. In an order, the General Administration department asked all the state government employees to attend office from Tuesday with strict observance of the social distancing guidelines.
However, government employees having symptoms of Severe Acute Respiratory Infection / Influenza like Illness have been directed not attend office and apply for leave.
Government employees residing within containment zones will not attend office under intimation to their controlling authority, the order said.
The Controlling Officer shall enforce proper social distancing protocol. In case, the same is not feasible owing to lack of office space, the department may resort to roster arrangement so that the government work does not suffer, the order mentioned.
