Deputy Nash said: “I have raised this pressing issue for financial services workers and customers on several occasions in recent weeks with the Minister for Health.

“Inexplicably, the Minister had repeatedly declined to bring the practice on mask wearing in banks, post offices and credit unions into line with the regulations in Northern Ireland and other jurisdictions.
