Using Additional Ground Bar

I have a 200Amp 40-breaker panel as my main. There is a currently unused additional ground bar that came with the panel. It is bonded to the panel. Do I need to add a wire from the ground bar to one of the neutral/ground bars? Or does the bonding to the panel suffice?

Using Additional Ground Bar

Panel bond is good.

Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.
