The COVID-19 remains the world's most significant event and BLOM Bank France London closely monitors the developments through UK Government daily briefings, the NHS guidance and our Regulators directives.
So far we have mitigated the virus risk by measures described in the previous circular of 20 March 2020 and thankfully to date our staff remained in good health and coronavirus safe. We continue to provide our usual banking services through our hard working dedicated team who attend to customer requests diligently and punctually.
The NHS has advised that the virus will intensify to reach a peak in the next few weeks and that is why we decided to shorten the Bank's opening hours from 9:30am to 2:00pm instead of 3:30pm. This will help our staff to avoid contagion while commuting in busier times and enable them to be at home for longest possible duration. We will of course revert back to usual hours once the Government eases the lock down measures to combat coronavirus.
We will continue to update you on developments in the pandemic and we hope that you and your loved ones stay in best of health and safe.
BLOM Bank France, London
