One of the employees at the Central Bank has tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday, the Central Bank said today. In a statement, it said all necessary measures have been implemented to prevent contagion, including rigorous sanitisation and disinfection of its Head Office premises, 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, senior management of the Bank, who functioned physically from the Bank premises thus far, also decided to work from home for a period of two weeks commencing November 20,” it said. The Central Bank said it follows stringent infection prevention guidelines to protect its staff and the visiting public, as the Bank considers ensuring their safety as a top priority. “In this context, the Central Bank wishes to inform the financial markets and the general public that its essential operations will continue as usual. “The general public can continue to reach the Central Bank electronically via / or via telephone 011-2477966 and the other numbers already announced,” it said.
