Update: May 27, 2021

In response to updated CDC guidance, updated health orders in the State of Ohio, and the resulting amendment to the City of Athens Mask Ordinance, vaccinated customers are no longer required to wear masks when visiting a bank office.

Our Statement on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) - March 12, 2020

We take the health and well-being of our customers, our employees, and the communities we serve very seriously.  As a result, we are closely monitoring information on the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) provided by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, health officials in the State of Ohio and Athens County, and our trade associations:  the Ohio Bankers League and the American Bankers Association.

Team members in all locations are following standard protocols for proper hand washing, making use of hand sanitizer – also available for customer use, keeping hands away from faces, and avoiding handshakes.  In addition to daily janitorial services, contact surfaces are frequently cleaned with sanitary wipes as are pens and doorknobs.  Our employees have been encouraged to stay home if they become sick.

Should there be concerns about visiting our physical locations, online, mobile, and telephone banking services are readily available. Drive-up banking and eight conveniently located ATMs can also help to alleviate some concerns associated with human contact.

We will continue to review updates as well as recommendations from the respective health and public safety organizations communicating any changes in our event planning that may result.
