Bank Windhoek implements Covid-19 preventative measures

In response to the first confirmed Coronavirus cases, Bank Windhoek has implemented preventative measures as part of its overall action plan to ensure the health and safety of its staff and clients at all its Branches and Departments countrywide.

According to a statement issued this week, all branches and departments have received or are in the process of receiving additional disinfectants including hand sanitisers and additional cleaning of ATMs, Point-of-Sale devices and other surfaces that are human contact points.

The bank also announced that installation of bulk disinfectant dispensers at key points are underway and staff and clients will be required to make use of these dispensers whenever passing these key points.

“The situation is unprecedented but the measures that have been put in place seem to be effective at the moment,” said Baronice Hans, the Managing Director of Bank Windhoek. “The situation is being monitored very closely and our focus is on the health and wellbeing of staff and our customers.

Furthermore, in line with the directive from President Hage Geingob over the weekend, all events sponsored by Bank Windhoek are postponed for the following 30 days.
