JN Bank says it is temporarily adjusting its business hours, for the safety of members, customers and its employees amid the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Effective March 30, 2020, JN Bank branches will be opened from 9 am to 1.30 pm between Monday and Friday; while Saturday banking locations will offer services from 10 am to 1 pm.

Gayle and Annotto Bay locations in St Mary will open 9 am to 4 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Further, senior citizens will be given priority in-branch.

“In keeping with protocols outlined by the government, we have staggered the number of members and customers entering our branches during opening hours, to provide room for physical distancing in our banking halls”, JN Bank said in a statement.

However, appropriate arrangements have been made to ensure members waiting to enter the branches are comfortable and adequately distanced, while outside, to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

At the same time, the bank said access to the JN LIVE Personal online banking has been fully restored, and, therefore, members may conduct transactions conveniently online or by using our Smart ATMs island-wide instead of waiting in the banking halls.

JN Bank said it will continue to take the necessary precautions to protect members and employees.

“We encourage everyone to continue to conduct the necessary hygiene practises and to abide by the necessary regulations and guidelines to protect themselves and loved ones during this period,” the bank said.

JN Bank, in collaboration with its parent company, The Jamaica National Group, has implemented a raft of solutions to assist its members and customers through the challenges expected to emerge as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as their businesses and communities.
