A Letter To Our Customers,

Like you, we have spent the last several days and weeks learning about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it is impacting our world. For First State Bank, that means understanding how it affects our employees, customers and our community, and then making the necessary adjustments to our work and operations.

Even though nobody can ever be fully prepared for something like this, we would like to provide you with the comfort of knowing we are prepared for a variety of emergency situations related to what has been happening. We are committed to our communities and a continuation of service, but are also focused on the health and safety of our customers and employees. With that in mind, we have made changes in our business in response to the risk of the coronavirus.

We have ramped up cleaning services at our bank and are adding hand sanitizer at the front entrances and at all teller lines. Sanitizing wipes are near workstations and counters so that employees can keep them continuously cleaned.
