HYDERABAD: All government employees and staffers will be permitted to join regular office work once they take two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine. With positive cases still being reported across the State, the Revenue Department officials have received instructions from higher officials, which state that all the employees working in Tahsildar and RDO offices including Collectorates must be fully vaccinated.
As a precautionary measure, the Revenue officials have asked staffers to attend duties only after they get both the doses. Sources said that a majority of the staff had been administered double dose of the vaccine and that a vaccination drive was being conducted for the remaining staff. However, some employees have not been vaccinated so far, due to several reasons, he added. “During the second wave, a number of Revenue staffers and employees lost their lives to the deadly virus,” officials said. Also, it is mandatory for people visiting Tahsildar’s offices to wear masks. To make sure the offices are not crowded, only 3-5 persons will be permitted inside at a time.
