Operations at Devolution Ministry paralyzed by COVID- 19

All staff at the State Department for Devolution have been ordered to self-isolate for 14 days after 18 employees tested positive for Covid-19.


The PS for Devolution, Charles Sunkuli made the revelations in a memo sent to the heads of departments and circulated to the media.

“Following 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. The purpose of this memo is to request you to inform all the officers working in your department to isolate themselves for the two weeks,” Sunkuli said.

The officers will be subjected to another mass testing on August 17 upon resuming work. All staff are required to self-isolate from August 3 to 16.
This indicates that operations at the key Ministry’s departments may grind to a halt for the next two weeks.
