All exposed colleagues in the branch are undergoing tests and will be required to self-isolate for a period of 14 days.

Tracking 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 a precautionary measure, the Branch has been temporarily closed to mitigate the risk of further infection to other staff, customers and the public, and we will reopen after undergoing thorough decontamination and cleaning in line with the Ministry of Health Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

For this period customers are encouraged to useour digital channels (QuickBanking, dfcu, ATMs) for their routine banking activities…..

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 families.”

This however comes at a time when staff at several companies like New Vision, Toyota, UBC, Stanbic Bank and others have been take into quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19.
