Effective, Monday, March 30, 2020 and until further notice, the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) staff (with limited and necessary exceptions) will be telecommuting. During this time, all protocols for security and confidentiality will be maintained, including but not limited to, specific requirements for financial transactions and sensitive communication.
The ECCB is closely monitoring developments as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this period of socio-economic dislocation and uncertainty, the ECCB remains fully committed to: (i) the safety and wellbeing of our staff, and by extension their families; and (ii) serving our member countries.
Cognisant of these key commitments, we give the assurance that the ECCB has implemented a comprehensive business continuity and response strategy to protect our staff and continue the delivery of our services. Our response strategy includes the use of our technological capabilities to facilitate bank-wide telecommuting.
As we collectively navigate this exceptional period, we encourage our stakeholders to share with us, contingency measures which have been implemented to facilitate our continued cooperation and collaboration.
We encourage you to continue to observe all protocols established by the World Health Organization and your local health and governmental authorities inclusive of hand hygiene and social distancing, to fight the scourge that is COVID-19.
