The Bank is committed to recommend immediate quarantine to all customers or employees with whom the colleague has had direct contact. The branch can be reopened only after complete disinfection and with a team that has not been in direct contact with the positive colleague.. As a precaution against the virus, the bank employees wear masks and gloves, use disinfectants, observe the recommended distance, etc.
