Clarien’ banking operating hours will be amended during the Covid-19 pandemic, and they will “dedicate the hour of 9am – 10am to serve at risk clients,” such as the elderly or anyone with depressed immunity or have an ailment that may make them more vulnerable to virus exposure.
A spokesperson said, “Clarien announced that banking operating hours will be amended in order to provide essential banking services only. Clients are encouraged to practice self- isolation and self- quarantining where necessary.
“In-branch transactions and visits to the branch should be limited for the safety of our employees and clients. Social distancing will be strictly enforced when entering Clarien facilities. The use of our digital banking portals is strongly recommended.
