HSBC Bermuda has temporarily closed its Church Street branch until further notice.

In a statement, it said: “Due to the recent rise in the number of individuals testing positive for Covid-19 on the island and the consequent school closures and Government mandated quarantine requests, it has become more difficult to ensure full staffing levels every day.

“In order to maintain service standards across the branch network, the bank has taken the decision to temporarily close the branch. The closure will include all teller services, payroll collection, banking appointments and deposit-taking services, including night deposit chutes at that branch. These services will now be provided at the HSBC Harbourview branch.”

HSBC said it is following all Bermuda Government Covid-19 protocols, and these will guide the decision about when the branch is reopened.

The Harbourview Centre, St Georges and Somerset branches remain open for business from 9am to 4.30pm, Monday through Friday.

The bank said customers are reminded to use digital channels as much as possible through online banking and/or the mobile banking app. The contact centre can be reached by calling 299-5959.
