At NBCU, the health and wellness of our members and staff is our top priority. We are taking direction from the CDC so that we can do our part to lessen the impact of the COVID-19 Virus.
We’re taking a commonsense approach that includes the following:
- We encourage members to use our remote banking services whenever possible. NBCU’s Online Banking, Online Loan Applications, and Mobile App allow Members to do nearly everything they need from home. We ask that you please consider using ATMs to access your cash. NBCU is part of the ALL Point Network with 55,000 Surcharge-Free ATMs Worldwide.
- Our team is making every effort to deep clean and sanitize branches, workspaces, common areas and regularly touched surfaces. Still, please exercise care and common sense when visiting us in person.
We are closely following the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines and recommendations on the steps we can take to help prevent the spread of the virus. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and evaluate additional measures to support our members and communities as needs arise. We are committed to being in your corner during these times of uncertainty and volatility. As always, we are here to help.
What we are doing
We have several precautionary measures in place to prevent the likelihood that our operations would be significantly affected by the Coronavirus, including:
- Educating employees on preventative measures they can take and sharing important updates from the CDC.
- Offering flexibility in several sick leave policies, and encouraging employees that feel sick to stay home.
- Facilities staff have increased the frequency and fervor in which they are cleaning offices and high trafficked areas in our buildings.
- We have instituted “hands-free” zones in all our locations. We have signs posted stating that we have a temporary no handshake policy in place for the safety and well-being of our employees, members, and community alike.
- Limiting face to face contact by canceling all non-essential bank travel/conferences/events and holding meetings via teleconference.
- All staff is encouraged to wash their hands with soap and water frequently. When running water is not readily available, the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers is advised and has been provided to them at all our office locations.
