Dfcu Bank has announced temporary closure of its Lugogo branch after staff members there tested positive for Covid19.
The Bank revealed last evening that a total of 5 members of staff had tested positive for the virus.
“The affected staff have been accorded the requisite medical and psychosocial support. All exposed colleagues in the branch are undergoing tests and will be required to self-isolate for a period of 14 days,” the banks said in a statement.
“Tracking of all possible contacts is also underway and we are working with the Ministry of Health to facilitate the process of having the requisite tests carried out.”
As such Dfcu says this branch is being temporarily closed to mitigate the risk of further infection to other staff, customers and the public, and will reopen after undergoing
thorough decontamination and cleaning in line with the Ministry of Health Standard Operating Procedures.
For this period, customers were encouraged to utilise our digital channels (QuickBanking, dfcu Agents, ATMs) for their routine banking activities.
Those that need to access banking services within the area, were advised to visit nearby branches which include Bugolobi Branch – Kagga House, Acacia Branch – John Babiha (Acacia) Avenue, Kololo and Banda Branch – Shell Kyambogo
“We also appeal to all our customers and the public to adhere to the SOPs by the Ministry of Health to curb the spread of the pandemic and protect our families.”
