The offices were closed over the weekend and were disinfected and as a precautionary measure. All workers were sent home to self-isolate until further notice.

According to a statement from the bank on Monday, the branch will reopen on Wednesday, 29 July 2020.

“Our contact register was handed over to the Ministry of Health and Social Services to continue their contact tracing. Our thoughts are with all our employees, their families and our customers who are affected by Covid-19,” the bank added.
