All emergency services and offices will remain open as an exception

The Cabinet Division has issued an order to complete all official works of the government offices on the virtual platform in an attempt to implement ongoing travel curbs and tighter restrictions amid the severe Covid-19 situation across Bangladesh.

“All the official works at government offices must be conducted on virtual platforms like e-document, e-tendering, e-mail, SMS and WhatsApp amid coronavirus restrictions,” says a circular issued on Sunday.

The instructions have already been sent to all ministries and divisions concerned.

All government, semi-government, autonomous and non-government offices will remain closed to check the countrywide Covid-19 infections, reads the circular.

But, all the emergency services and offices will remain open as an exception.

The official order also asked to take necessary steps to accomplish all the official works of the government offices, keeping the working platform virtual.

To control the spread of the deadly coronavirus, the government first enforced a weeklong strict lockdown starting from July 1, which was later extended by another week till July 14.

Earlier, the Cabinet Division issued a gazette notification with 21 restrictions amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
