THE Byres Road branch of Bank of Scotland is closed as staff members are self-isolating. 

An employee of the branch was diagnosed with coronavirus

A sign posted on the door of the bank, seen today, reads: "We've temporarily closed this branch as some of our colleagues are taking precautionary steps to self-isolate. 

"This means we do not have enough staff available to keep the branch open."

The sign was spotted by West End news site Glasgow West End Today. 

A Bank of Scotland spokesperson said: “We have temporarily closed the Byres Road branch in Glasgow after a colleague was diagnosed with Covid-19.

Our priority is the wellbeing of our colleagues and customers and we continue to follow Government guidance. As a number of our colleagues are now self-isolating we’re unable to open the branch, but we’ll reopen as soon as we can.”
