The order, issued by Chief Secretary Nilam Sawhney, also directed them to minimise their movement even within the State and not leave the headquarters without written permission from the heads of department. This, however, will not be applicable to field-level functionaries.

The decision assumes significance as about half a dozen employees in the the State Secretariat in Amaravati had tested positive for Coronavirus in the last ten days.

The officers and staff residing in containment zones should not come to office and, instead, work from home till the respective containment zone is de-notified, it said.

Those suffering from major ailments such as high blood pressure, diabetes, coronary heart disease, chronic kidney disease, besides pregnant women have been asked to work from home.
