What we’re doing
Cleaning and sanitizing!
We have already implemented additional daily cleaning and sanitation measures to ensure that all high-touch surfaces in our branches are routinely cleaned; includes ATMs, drive-thrus, and night drops.
Washing our hands or staying home
Our employees are trained on proper hygiene and have been instructed to stay home when ill, or if someone in their household is feeling unwell.
Monitoring the situation
1st Security Bank is closely monitoring the impact and spread of COVID-19 in our communities throughout Washington State and will regularly update this page as the situation evolves.
We are constantly checking updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Washington State Department of Health, the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as our local governments.
Looking forward, staying positive
There is no doubt these are trying times for everyone. These times are also an opportunity to come together and remind ourselves what we're thankful for and what keeps us positive.
