COVID-19: Banks set up precautionary measures in Ibadan

COVID-19: Banks set up precautionary measures in Ibadan: Some banks in Ibadan, on Monday, set up precautionary measures against the spread of COVID-19, as customers were made to observe safety protocols before gaining access in the banking hall.

Speaking with the Nigeria News Agency , members of staff of some banks, who pleaded anonymity, said that the measures were taken to ensure that customers washed their hands and used hand sanitiser before entering the banking hall.

NAN also observed that some banks created a distance of one meter from one person to another to ensure social distancing, while others were using thermometers to check the temperature of their customers before being allowed access.

Individuals with temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius were not allowed into the banking hall.

Some of the customers, who spoke with NAN on this development, commended the bank for being proactive in ensuring their safety and those of their staff mebers.

Mr Adetunji Olawale said “I am very impressed at this measure. At least, we can be confident that we are safe while banking at this time.”

Alhaja Yetunde Olagunju said that the peculiarity of this time had necessitated the delay which the development might be causing in the banks.

She enjoined other banks, which had yet to follow suit, to take note and adjust adequately.

Mr Okon Agbor said though some people might see this as being too careful, everyone should join hands to ensure the general safety in the country at this period.

NAN reports that some banks in Ibadan, which set up precautionary measures against COVID-19, included First Bank Plc, Stanbic IBTC, Access Bank and Polaris Bank, among others.
