Has coronavirus impacted Premium Bonds?

The NS&I website says its still “business as usual” for the Premium Bonds prize draw.

NS&I will still be paying out prizes every month as normal.

Only call them if “you absolutely have to”, as their customer service teams are smaller than usual due to the coronavirus outbreak.
