Dimapur, April 17: With reference to its earlier advisory that “No hospital based personnel are to enter the office premises. Instead of Physical visits, they are advised to leverage electronic means of communications including webinar,” the State Health & Family Welfare Department today said there appears to be a misinterpretation of the advisory and that it was issued so as to minimize the movement of personnel considering the lockdown.
In a press release, the Directorate of H&FW stated that the advisory was issued so as to minimize the movement of personnel considering the lockdown and to ensure that personnel are in their places of posting where unless urgently required for them to be out.
“It was also noticed that a phone call to the State Control room officials would have been sufficient rather than wasting time on visiting. It is however, reiterated that for any work which require attendance on any office premises, there is no restriction,” it clarified.
“The health workers are the frontline workers in the fight against any disease including the COVID-19 pandemic and any oversight from the Directorate of H&FW may kindly be condoned,” it said. (Page News Service)
