Rivers State government has directed all civil servants in the state to resume work on Thursday, 29th April, after a three-month break to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
Head of the Civil Service in the state, Rufus Godwin made the announcement in a statement on Wednesday in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
He, however, warned the workers to strictly comply with the mandatory COVID-19 protocols by observing social distancing, wearing facemasks, and using hand sanitiser.
Godwins also directed all permanent secretaries and heads of extra-ministerial offices to monitor and ensure the workers observe the guidelines.
