Bank CEOs will download COVIDSafe and encourage staff to do same

26 April 2020

The CEOs of Australia’s banks support the Federal Government’s efforts to improve tracing of COVID-19 within the community and will today download the COVIDSafe app. To better protect their staff and their customers, each CEO will also personally encourage their staff to do the same.



Australian Banking Association CEO Anna Bligh said the COVIDSafe app was an important part of the Federal Government’s plan to reopen the economy and relax restrictions on community movement.

“Australia’s banks are right behind efforts to open up the economy in the coming weeks, when healthcare authorities say it’s safe to do so.”

“Australia’s banks are right behind efforts to open up the economy in the coming weeks, when healthcare authorities say it’s safe to do so,” Ms Bligh said.

“Today the CEOs of Australian banks will download the COVIDSafe app and, to protect staff and customers, encourage their staff to do the same.

“It’s important the community embraces this app as a way of improving the ability of our front line health workers to trace contacts of those who have tested positive to COVID-19,” she said.
