As we follow the health department’s recommendations on social distancing, wearing masks and other preventive measures, we hope to do our part to help contain the spread of COVID-19 and its newer variants.
- Masks are still encouraged for customers at this time, and still recommended by health officials.
- For new account openings or loans, safe deposit access, and other banking activity taking more than 10 minutes, an appointment is recommended to deliver the best and safest service, eliminating the need to wait and to aid in social distancing. Visit our locations page for directions and phone numbers.
- We are taking great care to keep our employees and our customers safe by:
- Wearing masks, avoiding handshakes and maintaining a six-foot distance where feasible.
- Using plexiglass barriers at our teller lines and at closing appointments as an added safety measure.
- Cleaning frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, ATMs keypads, drive-thru tubes, etc.
- Repeatedly encouraging our employees to practice hand washing, social distancing and staying home if they feel sick.
