Bhubaneswar: With the improvement in the Covid-19 situation, the State Government on Friday asked all of its Departments and subordinate offices to function with full strength of employees until further orders.
In an order, the General Administration & Public Grievance Department said, “Most of the employees are now fully vaccinated and are required mandatorily to attend office regularly. In case any employee has been unable to get vaccinated for medical or some other compelling reason(s), he/she must apply for an exemption to the Head of Office.”
On receipt of such applications, the concerned head of the office will consider it on a case-to-case basis. Employees who are neither vaccinated nor exempted would not be permitted to attend office and their absence will be treated as willful, said the order.
Like earlier, all State Government offices will remain closed on Saturdays.
The Government offices and all employees have been asked to take all precautionary measures to prevent spread of Covid infection.
“In case of detection of Covid infection case in any office, the protocol issued by the GA&PG Department shall be followed and be reported to the concerned head of office,” it said.
