Commonwealth Bank on Berwick’s High Street has temporarily closed its doors due to staffing shortages as a result of coronavirus pandemic.
As staff members who have tested positive with Covid-19 isolate for the recommended period, the Berwick branch has made the decision to temporarily pause its services.
A Commonwealth Bank spokesperson assured customers the bank would reopen as soon as possible.
“Commonwealth Bank has temporarily closed the High Street branch for the health and safety of staff because of Covid-19 exposure,” the spokesperson said.
In the meantime, customers can travel to the closest Commonwealth Bank at Fountain Gate Shopping Centre to access their banking services, or phone the team on 13 22 21.
The branch has been closed for about a week and is expected to reopen on Monday, 17 January.
