CHARLESTON, WV (WOAY) – Gov. Justice announced that plans continue to be made to transition State employees back into government office buildings.
“Many people have worked from home and they have done terrific work, I don’t think we’ve skipped a beat,” Gov. Justice said. “I want our state workers to know that their safety is paramount and our highest concern.”
The Governor said that he wants Cabinet Secretaries to have the flexibility to bring employees back in a way that makes sense for their individual agency. Telework will continue for the most vulnerable individuals and for offices that can maintain full services with remote work.
The West Virginia National Guard will help ensure each agency has proper cleaning and disinfecting procedures in place for each facility.
Safety guidelines for the reopening of government office buildings are now available.
“Our people have done a terrific job,” Gov. Justice said. “They’ve kept us running in the most essential way; they kept our government up and going.
“We congratulate them on that and, as we bring them back, we just want them to feel like we’re bringing them back in a very safe atmosphere.”
