“The BELCO payment centre remains open at its main office located at 27 Serpentine Road but will be closing early at 3:30 pm each day until further notice. Customer Service Representatives are available until 5:00 pm Monday to Friday.

“Social distancing has been adopted for the health and safety of customers, particularly seniors and vulnerable customers, and staff by limiting the number of customers in the BELCO lobby to four or less at a time.

“BELCO bill Payments may be made online at www.belco.bm using Mastercard, Visa or America Express and the fees will be waived.
