Important Message Regarding Lobby Access
The health and safety of our customers, employees, and the communities we serve have always been top priorities for First National Bank. We have been committed to meeting your financial needs safely and providing top quality service during this challenging time.
Per state guidelines, we request that you wear a face covering when inside First National Bank. If you do not have a face covering when you arrive, we will provide one to you in order to protect each other. You may be asked to lower your face covering for identification purposes.
In an effort to limit face to face contact and reduce the number of people in the lobby at one time, we are continuing to encourage our customers to utilize our drive-thru facilities, bank remotely, and/or to make appointments with their local banker or lender. A list of phone numbers is below.
Our branch operations are in compliance with the reopening guidelines set forth by our Governor. Additional protective steps First National Bank is taking to help keep everyone safe include:
- Encouraging the continued practice of “social distancing” keeping six feet of space between individuals
- Utilizing protective shields in public spaces such as the teller counter, new accounts desk, and administrative office reception area
- Regular cleaning throughout the bank to disinfect surfaces and open spaces, as well as daily deep cleaning of our building
- Continuing to use remote work arrangements for many personnel
