Responding to the strict measures announced President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, on Wednesday, July 30, aimed at curtailing the spread of the Ebola epidemic in the country, the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) has directed all financial institutions, including commercial banks and insurance companies, to ensure full compliance.

All financial institutions are hereby further directed to close to the public to allow for the chlorination and disinfection of their premises effective Friday, August 1 to Saturday, August 2, 2014.  Business activities will resume on Monday, August 4, 2014.  All financial institutions are also directed to make further safety measures to protect the public against the Ebola epidemic.

The CBL said it will conduct inspection of the premises of financial institutions to monitor compliance with the presidential proclamation. Therefore, all concerned are advised to take note and govern themselves.  All cooperation of the public with this directive is also required.

The CBL wants all requests for information and/or clarification forwarded to its Regulation and Supervision Department (RSD).
