A MESSAGE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Preparedness
As the situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, I want to inform our customers as well as the public that we are actively taking steps to protect the safety and health of our community as well as continuing to provide reliable access to your financial needs.
With the onset of COVID-19 and the states of emergency that have been declared across the nation, we have implemented our long-established Pandemic Preparedness Plan and are following the status updates and guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Minnesota Department of Health as well as local health officials. We are also making sure that our employees have the resources they need to stay healthy and to determine when it is appropriate for them to stay home.
As part of this plan to protect our employees and customers, our lobbies will be closed to walk-in traffic beginning Monday March 23rd. The drive-up lane will remain open to both vehicle and walk-up traffic and will be utilized to handle all routine transactions. Drive-up window hours will remain the same.
Customers are encouraged to use our online and telephone banking options, ATMs, night deposit, and other services that we offer.
We are, however, accepting appointments for loan discussions, Safe Deposit Box access, new accounts and other requests that cannot be managed through the drive-up, phone, ATM, online and telephone banking, mobile deposit or other normal channels. Please call your local office to make these arrangements.
We appreciate your understanding and support during this challenging situation. As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve, rest assured that First State Bank of Bigfork will closely monitor the situation and respond as necessary to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved while continuing to provide essential banking services to our communities.
Jef Fisher, President/CEO
