Lucknow: In a bid to give relief to covid positive patients, working in government and private organizations, the Yogi Adityanath government has announced 28-day paid leave for them.

Last year also, the state government had issued an order in this regard after the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in Uttar Pradesh.

The order was issued again on Wednesday directing all government departments and private organizations to pay 28 day paid leave to their covid positive employees.

As per the government order, all organizations, government or private, having more than 10 employees on their rolls will have to set up a Covid-19 Help Desk and provide 28 days salaries to their covid positive employees.

The Chief Minister has also directed to pay salaries if their factories are closed on the government orders due to the second surge of coronavirus in the state.

The state government has reiterated it has no plans as of now to impose lockdown in the state. It has also allowed factories to remain open during weekend lockdowns.

“We not only have to save the lives of the people but their livelihood. Lockdowns will not only affect the economy of the state but also financial conditions of working employees,”clarified Deputy Chief Minister Dr Dinesh Sharma.
