The Ministry of Finance has ordered its staff to work from home in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Chief Director at the Finance Ministry, Patrick Nomo.
The Ministry said it has also begun testing all staff for COVID-19, adding that those who test positive will be informed and aided to seek treatment.
“While we wait for the testing team to compile the comprehensive results, all staff are to work from home effective immediately,” a section of the statement said.
“Staff who test positive will be duly informed and will receive the necessary care from the appropriate health authorities designated by the Ministry of Health.”
The Finance Ministry, however, assured that having staff work from home will not hinder the completion of the mid-year budget review.
