COVID-19 UPDATE

Together we have made progress, but we know we are not out of the woods yet. We will continue to put the health and well-being of our co-workers, our members, and the community ahead of all other interests as we make decisions.

Here is what you can expect:

  • All members, visitors, and branch employees will be required to wear a facial mask or face covering when entering the branch. If you don’t have a facial covering, one will be provided for you.
  • Social distancing will be observed and a distance of 6’ will be maintained at all times.
  • Member capacity may be limited to help with social distancing. This may mean longer wait times and members may be asked to wait outside of the building.
  • There will be plexi-glass cough/sneeze germ shields at the teller stations and member service desks.
  • Routine cleaning and sanitizing will take place at regular intervals at teller windows and shared member spaces.
  • NanoSeptic self-cleaning adhesives have been installed on door handles and other high touch point areas throughout the branch
  • The health and wellness of our staff will be monitored on a daily basis.

A few additional things to remember:
