Westpac NZ encourages Kiwis to bank from home during Covid-19 pandemic

Westpac NZ is encouraging customers to do their banking online or over the phone during the Covid-19 lockdown period.

The bank plans to open 32 branches located regionally around New Zealand for reduced hours on Wednesdays during the Level 4 lockdown to provide essential transactional banking services to customers unable to use alternative options.

Branches will be open as normal tomorrow (Wednesday 25th March) while the country is still at Level 3.

Westpac NZ General Manager of Consumer Banking and Wealth, Gina Dellabarca, says customers should avoid coming into branches unless really necessary.
