Banks closed on Sunday, Wednesday
Banks will remain closed on Sunday and Wednesday next week as part of the government attempts to rein in the soaring cases of coronavirus, the central bank said yesterday.
The banking hours, however, have been extended so that clients can settle financial transactions smoothly.
Clients will receive banking services from 10am to 2.30pm on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, according to a central bank notice.
The BB earlier said that banks would be open for customers till 1.30pm during the ongoing strict restrictions on movement, which will end on August 5.
The central bank has now come up with the latest decision as the infection rate from the highly contagious virus is rising.
