(KDRTV)-State Department for Devolution has instructed all staff to self-isolate for two weeks after 18 colleagues tested positive for COVID-19
In an internal memo, Devolution Principal Secretary Charles Sunkuli said that the 18 infections were confirmed after 128 samples were tested
“Following the mass testing for COVID-19 that was done on July 23, 2020, it has come to our attention that 18 officers tested positive for the disease out of 128 samples,” said the PS.
“The purpose of this memo is to request you to inform all officers working in your departments to isolate themselves for the next two weeks from 3rd to 16th August, 2020.”
Thus, Sunkuli said that the staff will be obligated to return to work on August 17, after which another round of mass testing will be done
“I wish to thank the officers who undertook the test and since the test results were delayed, we need to do a further testing after the two weeks,” he said.
