Message from our ChairmanWe are amid a major health crisis that is affecting the entire world.
Coronavirus is clearly a danger, and until it passes, we will not truly know how bad the virus is in terms of number of sick people and deaths. For the sake of stability, we must live in the present and deal with the requirements of everyday life. We must remain positive, calm and focused. Keep healthy tips and practices at the forefront while monitoring daily updates.
We are conducting the highest sanitary measures at every one of our locations to help protect each of you and our staff. We ask you to do the same. Make sure you have taken suggested hygiene steps when handling your financial transactions at the bank. Clean hands by washing or sanitizing is recommended before you arrive. It is also important to refrain from touching your face. If each person follows the recommendations on hand-washing or sanitizing, that will help a great deal. All these self-help practices will add value to ending this terrible health crisis.
