As of January 3, unvaccinated employees will not be allowed entry to federal government entities, and all federal government employees must take the booster shot.

The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) issued a circular to all ministries and federal entities today, outlining all the latest measures implemented at the federal government level to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

The authority called on ministries and federal authorities to ensure that all their employees had received the booster shot of the COVID-19 vaccine.

This step ensures optimal efficiency in implementing the Green Pass on the Al Hosn app.

The authority also instructed all federal government entities to regulate procedures relating to COVID-19 positive employees and contact tracing by using, as a reference, FAHR's instruction manual on ways of dealing with employees who are suspected or confirmed of having COVID-19 and those who came into contact with positive cases in the workplace.

Federal government entities must also abide by the mechanisms for registering such cases, vaccinated employees and remote work applications in federal government-approved electronic systems.

The authority stressed the urgency of having all federal authorities adhere to precautionary measures to limit the spread of epidemics in workplaces by implementing the FAHR-issued instruction manual on the office work environment and working from the office in emergencies, and the mechanisms for dealing with those seeking government services or visitors to federal government entities, as well as the penalty guide of the violations committees at federal government entities when dealing with employees who fail to comply with precautionary measures.

The authority noted that these procedures and guidelines may be updated or amended in line with the latest requirements of health authorities, and in coordination with authorities concerned with emergencies and crises.
