Sonali Bank Limited authorities have closed its Shilpa Bhaban Corporate branch in Dhaka after an official tested positive for the novel coronavirus on Monday.
The bank's public relation division's General Manager Jakir Hossain Khan told The Business Standard today.
All bankers and other employees of the branch were asked to stay in home quarantine, said Jakir Hossain.
The bank authorities requested the valued customers of the branch to receive emergency services from the nearby Dilkusha Corporate Branch until further notice, he added.
Recently, another state-owned bank, Agrani Bank, has put its principal branch under lockdown as one of their officials tested positive in the branch in a primary test of coronavirus.
However, the official was found Covid-19 negative in another test in PCR lab. The branch was, later, reopened.
