Making the announcement, Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) said exceptions would be made for those suffering from chronic diseases as long as they submitted a detailed medical report approved by an authorised committee.

The authority added that no other exemptions will be available.

Flexible working hours and shifts will also be introduced to ensure social distancing protocols are met.
