Covid closes King's Lynn NatWest branch
A pensioner who made a 36-mile round trip to deposit money in to NatWest in Tuesday Market Place, Lynn, yesterday found a note on the door stating they were closed for the day because a member of staff had contracted Covid.
The man was taking the money to put into the bank account that had been raised for a charity.
He told the Lynn News: "There was a note on the door saying they were closed due to Covid. Another lady had paid for parking so that was a waste of £2.80. I volunteer for the Cancer Care Treatment unit at the QEH so it was important I had to pay the money in."
A spokesperson from NatWest said:" We were closed for one business day on Thursday, August 26 due to a member of staff contracting Covid-19. We did a deep clean and followed procedures, we did get some complaints online and everything is alright now."
The spokesperson could not comment further on how long the member of staff will be away from work, but the bank is back to business as usual today.
