All public servants to report for duty Monday
Secretary to the President Dr. P.B. Jayasundera has informed Public Services, Provincial Councils and Local Government Secretary J.J. Rathnasiri to revoke the circulars related to public sector employees’ working from home and calling for a limited number of staff members on a rotation basis.
These circulars were issues earlier to facilitate the control of COVID-19 pandemic.
In accordance with Jayasundera’s instructions, Rathnasiri informed all the public sector employees should be called back to duty as usual from Monday (2), in accordance with COVID-19 Health Guidelines.
The President’s Media Division said Jayasundera informed Rathnasiri since the majority of public servants have been vaccinated; priority should be given to restore normalcy to the public service.
