Republic Bank team member tests positive for COVID-19, industrial cleaning for two branches
Republic Bank (Barbados) Limited issued a statement on Tuesday after a team member tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). The statement follows.
“Republic Bank (Barbados) Limited has today been made aware that one of our team members stationed at our Independence Square Head Office has tested positive for COVID-19.
“We are offering full support to this individual, all colleagues stationed at that location and any team members who may have interacted with the affected individual.
“Our primary interest remains the safety of our full team, our clients and customers as we continue to rigorously follow all of the guidelines and protocols issued by the Ministry of Health and Wellness and the COVID-19 Monitoring Unit.
“Our Independence Square location houses our administrative departments and is not a customer facing branch, therefore interaction with members of the public is minimal.
“Out of an abundance of caution we have asked all staff in the affected department to remain at home until they receive their test results. Republic Bank has undertaken a full industrial cleaning of the building and has engaged the COVID-19 Monitoring Unit who will provide the all clear prior to our reopening.
“We are also undertaking an industrial cleaning of our Six Roads location which the affected staff member visited last week. We apologise for any delays which may occur at the two locations during this period.” (PR)
