CAIRO - 25 March 2020: Banks will be open from 9:30 a.m. until 1:30 a.m. until the evening curfew ends.

The Central Bank of Egypt said in a Tuesday statement that the staff of the Bank sector will have shorter shifts from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The curfew, which begins Wednesday, will be applied from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. in an effort to limit people’s movement and physical interaction amid the coronavirus pandemic. Essential services, such as pharmacies, are exempt from the curfew, which will last for two weeks.

A total of 38 banks work in Egypt, and more than 12,000 ATM machines are distributed in the country.
