COVID-19: Banks to sack customers who come to banking halls without face masks

- The Ghana Association of Bankers (GAB) has issued a statement with respect to the conduct of business in banking halls in Ghana

- GAB has instructed banks to sack customers who only wear face shields on their premises

- The directive forms part of measures to halt the spread of the coronavirus

Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in

Individuals who conduct business at the premises of banks are now required to wear face masks before they enter.

The directive, which is from the Ghana Association of Bankers (GAB), forms part of measures to halt the spread of the coronavirus.

YEN.com.gh understands that banks would therefore turn away anyone who shows up at their premises wearing face shields without masks.

A statement from GAB shows that the Association is interested in the welfare of staff, customers, and service providers.

For that reason, it went on, it is determined to ensure banking halls are safe and compliant with COVID-19 related workplace guidelines.

A citibusinessnews.com report quotes the Association as adding that all banks shall insist on all customers following protocols.

Those who fail to comply would be advised to make use of digital channels such as automated teller machines (ATMs) and mobile devices.

The Association also advised visitors to banks to thoroughly wash their hands with water and soap provided at all banking facilities and observe the protocols advertised in the banking halls.
