The Ministry has instructed for institutions to continue functions with the minimum amount of employees required. 

Moreover, the circular states that all the Secretaries to the Ministries have been informed to allow the officers to stay at home whenever possible and to give priority to obtaining their services online.

Accordingly, this circular will remain in effect until further notice, in view of the difficulties faced by the public in the provision of day-to-day transport facilities and considering the demand for more essential services.
