It is emerging that the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has hit the Finance Ministry compelling a directive from Management to all staff to henceforth work from home.
This comes after the Ministry undertook mass testing of its workers and is awaiting results of the tests run on the worker of the outfit.
A memo in the possession of MyNewsGh.com indicates that workers whose test comes out positive will be communicated to for the next line of action to be taken.
However, a select few of the team at the Ministry will be working from a specific location to complete the Mid Years Budget which the Minister is expected to present to Parliament while the others will be expected to use the available digital channels for their meetings.
The Memo reminded staff to adhere to the various protocols put in place by the Ghana Health Service to ensure that they are safe but indicated that the Ministry will announce when it’s necessary to resume work from the office.
