Six staff of United Commercial Bank's (UCB) Jubilee Road branch in Chattogram tested positive for the novel coronavirus, prompting the bank authorities to shut down the branch temporarily on Wednesday.
Abdul Karim, manager of the branch, said, "One of the staff members is undergoing treatment at Chittagong General Hospital. The rest are in isolation at home."
"We already sprayed disinfectant twice to disinfect the branch. We will spray it a few more times before the branch resumes its operation on October 4, and the transaction will continue as per rules. Customers are requested to perform all kinds of transactions from the neighbouring Enayet Bazar branch till then," he added.
