Banks required to have sanitizers at all ATMs

Published on

The NCCC has provided a detailed overview of the new regulations and restrictions, with one of the new regulations stipulating that banks need to make sanitizers available at all ATMs.

Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and Minister Aaron Motsoaledi provided an overview of the new regulations on Tuesday, 12 January 2021, as announced in President Cyril Ramaphosa’s latest lockdown update, on behalf of the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC). While the update served more as a clarification of the restrictions per the latest address, not much has changed. The president merely announced a few amendments to the previously announced Level 3 regulations and restrictions.

However, one new change that was announced relates to the banking industry and ATMs. Dlamini-Zuma revealed that it was brought to her attention that ATMs do not have sanitizers available, which makes them possible superspreader locations. Therefore, the NCCC has decided that it is now mandatory for all ATM facilities to have sanitizers.

The minister did not detail what the consequences will be for banks that fail to ensure the cleanliness and safety of clients.
