The Personnel Management Office [PMO] has advised heads of public institutions to enforce Coronavirus regulations.
“In view of the recent surge of COVID-19 in The Gambia, all heads of MDAs are hereby required to enforce national and international protocols in places to curb the spread of the deadly virus.
“These include, but not limited to: wearing of face masks, regular washing of hands and maintaining appropriate social distancing,” the statement said.
The statement spelled out penalties for non-compliance to the regulations.
“Staff and visitors who do not wear face masks should not be allowed entry into public offices. Public servants who fail to report to duties on account of non-compliance with the COVID-19 regulations should be penalized by deducting a day’s pay from their next salary payment for each day’s absence in accordance with General Order 03116,” it said.
