Operations at the National Bank of Dominica’s main branch on Hillsborough Street have been suspended following COVID-19 exposure.

Speaking to DBS News on Tuesday, August 25, 2021, NBD’s Executive Manager of Marketing and IT Suzanne Joseph Piper said, “We are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our customers and employees.”

The premise will be properly sanitized and all staff members will be tested to ensure there is no threat upon reopening.

Piper said the bank is working closely with health officials in this regard.

NDB customers will still be able to do business at the bank’s branches on the Bayfront, Canefield Highway, and Portsmouth during normal business hours.

Customers are also being advised to use digital banking means as far as possible.

“NBD has been and will continue to enforce health and safety protocols. The wearing of masks and physical distancing is mandatory at our branches,” Piper said will encourage the public to stay safe by adhering to health and safety guidelines.

“We join to call to those of us who are not vaccinated to get vaccinated, in order to protect themselves and each other,” Piper added.
