The Central Bank says that one of its employees, who tested positive for Covid-19 on 19 November, is now under medical care.

Acting swiftly, the bank implemented all necessary measures to prevent contagion, tracing close contacts and arranging PCR testing for
possible contacts.

All other employees tested were found to be negative for the virus.

As a precautionary measure, the senior management of the bank also decided to work from home for a period of two weeks commencing on 20 November.

The bank continues with its business continuity plan, early formation of an emergency action task force to provide guidance in case of an emergency situation and the proactive measures taken by the bank in consultation with health authorities.

Close screening of all employees through regular online surveys, roster based working arrangement of in-person employees and effective work from home arrangements that have been put in place will help the bank to continue to function without disruption even after this incident.

The Central Bank informs the financial markets and the general public that its essential operations will continue as usual.
