The Public Services Commission has directed all public institutions to prioritise the health of public workers by providing flexible working hours as part of measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

In a memo, the Commission directed public service organisations to prepare their business continuity plan in accordance with the policy of flexible working hours.

The Commission suggested measures such as shifts, rotations and annual leaves for public workers to reduce the number of workers reporting to the office.

It also said national service personnel and interns could be granted their leave to stay at home.

This forms part of efforts to obey directives by the President regarding social distancing and other measures to combat COVID-19.

Ghana has recorded 52 cases of COVID-19 with two deaths.

The government has, thus, banned all social gatherings including funerals, church and mosque services, festivals among others.
