Request an appointment (not necessary)
We are here to help, Monday - Friday! Select the type of appointment you are looking for.
We hope you missed us, because we missed you. Upon entry, you’ll be greeted and instructed on appropriate social distancing precautions and ensure you’re wearing the right safety gear.
Floor markings will clearly define where to stand to maintain at least a six foot separation from others. The greeter will ensure proper distancing and may reserve the right to limit occupancy as needed. We ask that only those required to do the necessary transaction(s) come inside and may limit the number of members into our lobbies as appropriate.
Anyone who enters a building, including our team members, is required to wear a face mask. If you don’t have a mask, one will be provided. Gloves and hand sanitizer will also be available.
To help maintain cleanliness and ensure safety, please know that drinking fountains, bathrooms (except emergencies), coffee/cookie stations and other designated areas like Online Banking stations will be temporarily closed until further notice.
At our teller stations and member representative desks, plexiglass has been installed to create a safeguard against germs.
