COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Public Administration has issued a circular with respect to resuming public services, during the post-quarantine curfew period.

A statement noted that in order to ensure the continuous supply of essential services by public institutions, the Ministry Secretaries, Department Heads, and Institution Heads have been vested with the power to summon essential staff members to work.

However, it does not apply to public employees who use official/staff vehicles and transport allowances, and they are to report to work as usual.

All other staff members must be committed to working online from home, said the Ministry adding even when staff members are not summoned to work, they must be available to work online.

The Ministry also noted that pregnant mothers, breastfeeding mothers, and employees with identified illnesses should not be summoned to work, and they can only be called to work for an essential purpose, and transportation facilities need to be made available to them.

The Ministry of Public Administration said the Director-General of Health Services will issue the necessary guidelines for health workers.

Further, the Ministry noted that all COVID-19 preventive guidelines need to be followed.
