Fidelity Bank has disclosed that one of its staff, tested positive for coronavirus otherwise known as COVID-19

The bank made this known in statement which was issued its divisional head for brand and communications Charles Aigbe on Thursday.

The bank said the staff had returned from a holiday in the United Kingdom and been on self-isolation upon his arrival in Nigeria, in line with its policy that mandates staff and family members who have travelled overseas in recent time to self isolate for 14 days and test for the virus before returning to work.

It read, “Fidelity Bank mandates staff or immediate family member(s) who travel out the country to self-isolate for two weeks and obtain medical clearance before returning to work as part of our COVID-19 preventive and precautionary measures.

“This process was activated and strictly adhered to by one of our staff members who returned from holidays in the United Kingdom.

“He was in self-isolation and underwent testing in line with the bank’s policy. The test results returned positive at the weekend and we quickly arranged for him to be moved to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), where he is currently being attended to by health officials.”

The bank in addition noted that two other members of staff who received gifts from the individual have also been made to self-isolate and the office where they work has been closed temporarily.

According to the statement, the bank said no customers were identified in the contact tracing which was carried out.

Going further, the bank said it has closed down its business office at the federal secretariat in Abuja and advised all staff and vendors to self-isolate and go for testing in line with its policy on COVID-19, on account of possible exposure of a vendor staff.

Fidelity bank added that it is carrying out other measures such as the reduction in the number of staff expected to report physically at work and number of customers allowed at a time in the banking hall to a maximum of five to curb the spread of the virus.
