We are closely monitoring the re-opening guidelines provided by Governor Walz. We have developed a plan and have taken extra precautions to ensure the safety of our clients and staff.
For your safety and ours, we ask that you do not enter our lobbies if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Shortness of breath
What we are doing to keep our community and clients safe:
- Limited number of clients in the lobbies.
- Masks. Per Governor Walz's Executive Order 20-81, masks are required when entering our lobbies. If you do not have one, we can provide one.
- Social distancing. Clients and employees are asked to follow social distancing protocols. Please be aware of floor markers and arrows when visiting to ensure a safe social distance from other people.
- Plexiglass shields. At our teller windows and banker desks, we have installed plexiglass shields for another layer of protection.
- Hand sanitizer stations. Sanitizing stations have been placed in high traffic areas.
- Pens. Pens will only be used once. If you are using an FSBT pen, please take it with you when you leave or discard in the bin provided.
- Coffee. To help reduce the risk of spreading germs, we have removed coffee stations from all lobbies.
- Cleaning. Our employees and cleaning staff have ramped up their cleaning efforts and continue to disinfect high traffic areas regularly.
- Restrooms. Restrooms are temporarily closed.
- Employee social distancing. Employees who have the ability to work remotely are encouraged to do so. Internal meetings will continue to be held virtually to limit unnecessary exposure.
We appreciate your understanding and thank you for keeping our communities safe!
