Commonwealth Bank yesterday confirmed some of its employees have tested positive for COVID-19.
The bank’s confirmation came as the country’s COVID-19 cases continue on an upward trajectory and as deaths related to the virus climb.
Though it gave sparse details in a statement yesterday, Commonwealth Bank stated that its highest priorities are the health and safety of its staff, customers and the well-being of the communities it serves.
“Sadly, a number of CB family members have tested positive for COVID-19,” the bank’s press statement revealed.
“We wish to assure all of our stakeholders that, in all cases, we are following the guidance of, and safety protocols established by, the Ministry of Health to ensure that all of our branches and offices are safe for our employees, our customers and the general public.”
The Bahamas has more than 2,600 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 63 deaths.
Despite the continued rise in cases, Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis earlier this week announced further easing of restrictions.
