The Bank of Jamaica (BOJ) advised that on Wednesday (September 16) its Nethersole Place location will significantly reduce teller services.

The BOJ closed its main building in downtown Kingston for a second time on yesterday to carry out a deep cleaning and sanitation exercise following another COVID-19 scare.

In a release the BOJ said that it would only allow customers to exchange foreign and mutilated currencies at the location between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. daily.

The bank further encouraged the public to utilise Grace Kennedy’s financial services for coin exchange.

While other banking services should be conducted at commercial banks or other deposit-taking institutions.
