Heads of public service departments in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Labuan, Selangor and Sabah must ensure a maximum of 30% staff present at the office from tomorrow until the conditional movement control order (CMCO) ends.

Public Service Department director-general Mohd Khairul Adib Abd Rahman however said this would not apply to those in essential services.

He said the move was to strengthen efforts to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic in these areas, and to ensure that the basic services of these departments continue.

“For this purpose, all department heads are instructed to ensure that officers at the management and administrative level who are not required to be in the office full-time are scheduled to work from home, either on a rotational or full-time basis, so that their attendance at the office is optimised during the CMCO period,” he said in a statement today.

He said the directive in the circulars, namely Surat Edaran JPA.SARAAN(S)256/6/31 JLD.6 (2) dated March 17, 2020, and Surat Edaran JPA.SARAAN(S)256/6/31 JLD.6 (6) dated May 2, 2020 still applies.

Khairul also said all face-to-face activities such as meetings, discussions or trainings would be prohibited. These must be conducted online while official confidential documents are not to be brought out of the office during this period.

“However, the department head can give permission for the official confidential documents, whether hard copies or soft copies, to be brought out of the office based on the guidelines set by the Chief Government Security Office,” he said.

He also reminded department heads to ensure full compliance with all rules, guidelines and circulars issued by the National Security Council, health ministry and Public Service Department.

“These instructions are also extended to all state public services, statutory authorities, and local authorities affected by the CMCO,” he said.
