Finance Ministry staff to work from home after COVID-19 testing
The Finance Ministry has directed its staff to work from home after they were tested for the novel coronavirus.
Results of the testing are yet to be made known to them.
A memo from the ministry noted that “staff who test positive for the virus will be informed and will receive the necessary care from appropriate health authorities designated by the Health Minister.”
“In view of the preparations towards the mid-year review of the budget, a core team of staff will work from approved location to complete the Mid-Year Review,” it added.
Meanwhile, the ministry has assured the general public that it remains committed in protecting its staff and adhering to the safety protocols.
