  • We are taking measures and following guidance from the CDC
  • Customers can use online banking, mobile applications, and utilize telephone banking
  • You may see new faces if you visit a branch or hear a new voice on the telephone, as will fill in gaps with staffing that could occur.

What you can do:

Here are some important steps you should take to avoid illness and help minimize this emerging public health threat:

  • Please consider using online banking or drive-thrus if you are feeling sick or show cold or flu symptoms. This is a best practice during any cold and flu season.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and often – both front and back of hands, between fingers and each finger individually, including wrists – using soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Be especially diligent if you’ve touched someone you know is sick. If soap and water are not available, you may use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer to get similar results.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are experiencing symptoms of flu or other respiratory diseases. Stay at least 6 feet away from others who are sick. The virus can be spread through touch and via coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • If you have symptoms, cover your coughs and sneezes by using the bend of your arm (elbow) or using disposable tissues and immediately discarding them in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. If you are in a public setting, thoroughly wipe down surfaces with a bleach solution or pre-sanitized wipe prior to touching.
  • Stay home if you are sick. If your symptoms worsen, consult a healthcare professional about self-quarantining and next steps.
  • If you show signs of illness, avoid close contact with elderly family members and friends or those with compromising conditions, which make up a large part of the most vulnerable population.
