I hope this updated notice continues to find you and your family safe and healthy.
Over the last year plus, we have worked very hard to keep our employees and customers updated on our response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic event. We have shared the measures taken to protect our team members and neighbors visiting our offices on our website and our social media platforms. The personal health and well-being of community members, as well as the financial impact felt by our local business community and the people who work within it, weighed heavily on our hearts and minds.
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 one of our bank offices as of May 27, 2021. We understand that our friends and neighbors have varying opinions on the seriousness of the pandemic and remain cognizant that there is no “one size fits all.” This said, though not required, masks are certainly welcome in our buildings and Hocking Valley Bankers helping customers with this preference will don a mask when providing assistance. We ask that all customers visiting our offices be respectful of everyone’s personal choice. As a reminder, in addition to personal service, there are many ways to do business with us remotely: drive-thru banking, ATMs, and online, mobile, and telephone banking. We are also happy to talk to anyone who telephones us personally at 740-592-4441.
We remain devoted to helping our customers and are unwavering in our support of consumers who rely on our products and services to live their lives and provide for their families. As we return to normal, we have much to be grateful for. We are grateful for the employees that allowed us to provide the service you have come to expect from Hocking Valley Bank throughout a very difficult time. We are grateful for the customers who continue to put their trust in us. We are grateful to the communities we serve and look forward to seeing them return to their former vibrancy.
