As communities begin to feel the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19), I want to share with you the steps we’re taking at First Bank & Trust to help protect the health and safety of our customers and employees, which is always our top priority.

We’re closely monitoring local and national reports on the evolving impact of COVID-19 and, based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and applicable public health agencies, we’ve developed plans and established tasks that will allow us to respond timely and appropriately.

Our housekeeping and sanitization efforts in our banks have been greatly expanded. We’re frequently disinfecting often-touched surfaces such as door handles, countertops, keypads, and etc. We’re asking all of our employees (and we urge everyone) to follow the CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the infection.

We feel deeply for those who have been affected. Thankfully, as of now, we’re not aware of any employee contracting COVID-19. But we have implemented guidelines that instruct any employee who may develop symptoms or come into contact with infected individuals to stay home and follow the CDC’s instructions.

At this time, all of our banks are open for business during their regular hours to meet the needs of our customers. If we become aware of any condition in any bank that would make it unsafe, please rest assured that we’ll close that bank until those conditions have been addressed.

Again, the health and safety of our customers and employees are our top priority and we’re committed to doing our part to help keep you safe.

Thank you.
