Sterling Bank reacts as staff tests positive for coronavirus after work resumption

Sterling Bank has closed its branch in Ilupeju, Lagos after a member of staff tested positive for coronavirus following resumption after the Federal Government lifted the lockdown in Lagos State.

The bank said in a statement on Tuesday, 5 May 2020, that the staff member’s status was discovered late on Monday, 4 May 2020.

He was asymptomatic, according to the bank, and has been moved to an isolation centre in Lagos.

The bank assured the public that the patient had no contact with customers.

The statement reads:

Last night, we received confirmation that a staff in our Ilupeju office tested positive for the coronavirus.

As of this morning, he was still symptom-free and in good spirits while in isolation. The NCDC has also been in touch with him and will continue to actively monitor developments.

As part of our efforts towards ensuring the safety of our people, we have confirmed that he had no contact with customers. We have also since tested staff he may have come in contact with and they all tested negative.

Consequently, the branch has been shut for immediate deep hygiene cleaning. The Ilupeju Branch will be reopened once the disinfection has been completed.

We urge our customers in the affected area to conduct their transactions using our array of digital channels. Should you require our services from a banking hall, we advise the use of any of our other locations nearest to you.

Sterling Bank remains resolute in our commitment to the safety of our staff, customers and the general public. We enjoin every Nigerian to stay safe and adopt precautionary measures given by the World Health Organization and Nigeria Centre for Disease Control to prevent the spread of the virus.”
