“In this connection, an Antiviral Sanitisation of the High Commission premises was carried out on Monday, 16th August, 2021 in compliance with COVID-19 regulations.
“Accordingly, the Mission will reopen to officers and staff who have met the above-stated criteria and who present a valid PCR test from Wednesday, 18th August, 2021. However, officers and staff who are yet to be vaccinated, or have only received a single dose of the vaccine will still be required to self-isolate and return to the office on Monday, 23rd August, 2021, also with a valid PCR test dated on or after Sunday, 15th August, 2021.
