Currently, the state has 371 laboratory-confirmed cases, with 244 patients on admission, while 108 cases have so far been discharged while 18 victims have lost their lives to the virus.
In April, the state government had ordered workers to resume work but had to reverse the instruction due to reported cases of the virus in some council areas of the state.
The statement, however, said heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) should enforce guidelines and or protocols that would check the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) among workers.
The guidelines, according to the statement include the provision of handwashing facilities and sanitisers, enforcing the mandatory wearing of facemasks by workers, as well as compliance with physical and social distancing practice.
