The National Bank of Georgia (NBG) calls on the population for observing recommended hygienic norms when using cash money.
The NBG recommends washing hands after touching banknotes and coins since the money may have bacteria and transfer the virus. After contact with money, consumers are advised not to touch their face, eyes, nose and the mouth.
The National Bank also urges citizens for using distant bank services, mobile payments and using automated cash machines.
The money collected from the circulation will be kept separately and will not be put back into circulation before expiration of 14-day quarantine period.
Also, the bank reports that starting March 13, disinfection works will be regularly carried out at the cash center.
