DBS confirms Covid-19 case at Marina Bay Financial Centre Tower 3

DBS confirms that one employee has been infected with the novel coronavirus. The employee was tested on 11 February and the bank was informed of the confirmation this morning. During this difficult time, the bank will be providing this employee and his family with every support and guidance.

As a precautionary measure, as at 12pm today, we ensured that all employees on the affected floor at Marina Bay Financial Centre Tower 3 vacated the premises, to work from home. We are also currently conducting detailed contact tracing with all employees and other parties that the infected employee may have come into contact with. The affected office space, as well as common areas such as lifts and toilets, are being deep cleaned and disinfected in accordance with Ministry of Health guidelines.  

The health and well-being of our staff are a top priority for us, and we will lend them every support to get through these uncertain times. 

With effect from next week, all employees will receive a personal hygiene and protection Care Pack which includes masks, a thermometer, hand sanitiser and vitamin C. This is in addition to the medical helpline and complimentary services to virtual doctors that are already in place. We are also rolling out webinars for medical health professionals to update our employees on the latest developments on COVID-19 and answer any medical-related concerns that they might have.

In conjunction with the Orange DORSCON level, since 10 February, other precautionary measures that have been put in place include:

We have also activated business continuity plans, with employees working from home or from split sites, to ensure minimal disruption to operations. In addition, we have been sending out regular notices to remind all employees to remain vigilant and to adopt good personal hygiene habits.

DBS will continue to closely monitor the situation to ensure that the well-being of employees customers and partners is safeguarded.
