The HSBC Bermuda Church Street branch will be closed starting Monday, December 14, and it is expected to remain closed for the rest of this year.

In a statement, the bank said that due to the rise in the number of individuals testing positive for Covid-19 on the island, it had taken the decision to close the branch as a precautionary measure, to create an alternative and clean site, should one or more of the other branches be impacted due to the pandemic.

All Church Street employees are being redeployed elsewhere within the business to support our customers during this period.

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

The Harbourview Centre, St George’s and Somerset branches remain open for business as usual.

The bank reminded customers to use digital channels as much as possible through online banking and/or our mobile banking app. If they are not yet enrolled with online banking, they should visit www.hsbc.bm/register or call our Contact Centre on 299-5959.

The bank added: “We regret any inconvenience this decision may cause our customers. HSBC is committed to ensuring the continued safety of our employees, customers and the wider Bermuda community.”
