The offices at the Secretariat will run with physical presence of maximum 25 percent employees, while another 25 percent will do their official work online amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The government has taken this decision to ensure social distancing in the Secretariat offices, State Minister for Ministry of Public Administration Farhad Hossain said on Monday.

The employees of the Secretariat will work with physical presence and online in rotation during the ongoing corona outbreak, he said.

The Cabinet Division will issue a directive in this regard soon.

The state minister also said how many employees will do their official work in other government offices will be determined on the basis of the needs.

Government and private offices reopened on Sunday, 66 days after a shutdown enforced across the country to check spread of deadly coronavirus or Covid-19.
