All United Overseas Bank (UOB) branches in Singapore will be re-opened, concluding the final phase of the bank’s safe re-opening branch plan.

The bank’s remaining seven branches that were temporarily closed during the circuit breaker measures from April to June will be opened from August 20.

UOB says it will continue to maintain its precautionary measures at all branches, including increasing the frequency of cleaning at all branches, automated teller machines (ATMs) and auto lobbies.

The bank has also applied a commercial-grade self-disinfecting coating at high-touch areas including branch counters and meeting areas within its branches and at its ATMs.

All re-opened branches will continue to prioritise service for elderly and vulnerable customers during the first hour of banking operations.

As at 10.18am, shares in UOB are trading 26 cents lower, or 1.3% down, at $19.80.
