As the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has ordered workers in the state from grade level 14 and below to continue to work from home for another two weeks.

The governor approved a further extension of the work-from-home order to all State Public Servants to Monday, February 1 to curtail the spread of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A statement signed by the Head of Service, Mr. Hakeem Muri-Okunola, noted that the directive excludes staff on essential duty as well as First Responders.

The statement urged all public servants to stay safe and ensure continued observance of all COVID-19 protocols, including physical distancing, use of face masks, regular washing of hands with soap and running water as well as the use of hand sanitisers.

The statement also stated that the weekly duty rosters should be maintained for effective service delivery by Ministries, Departments and Agencies of the State Government.
