"The government offices, except those engaged in essential services, will be opened and operated with all 100 per cent officers and 50 per cent (other) employees from June 1," the order said. Since essential services, like collector's office, police, disaster management, health, fire brigade, water supply, jail, revenue, power supply, public transport, treasury, among others, are already running with their full capacity, this order is not applicable to them, it said.

In April, the state had restricted the presence of employees in government offices to 10 per cent due to the surge in COVID-19 cases. The new order is applicable till June 15, and the officials and employees will have to follow the COVID-19 guidelines, the state government said in a release on Sunday.
