  • Encouraging use of Drive Thru banking (where available) and ATMs
  • Actively enforcing Social Distancing in and around the branches and office
  • Controlling lobby or building access when needed
  • Asking customers who are sick, have a fever or a cough to use remote banking options or contact us for appointments
  • Increasing sanitation of our general environments and all high-touch surfaces
