Banks told to comply with protocol

The Ernakulam Rural police have directed banks to strictly comply with the COVID-19 protocol.

At a video conference on Friday, District Police Chief (Ernakulam Rural) K. Karthik asked bankers to adhere to the protocol to avert rush. Only those who cannot avoid visiting banks for transactions alone should be allowed inside, and in such cases, banks should fix appointments in advance and make arrangements accordingly.

Sanitisers should be made available at banks, and the COVID-19 protocol should be exhibited in Malayalam and English and, if possible, in Hindi as well.
