Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Effective: August 2, 2020

In response to the recent escalation in COVID-19 infection rates across South Florida, our Credit Union continues to remain focused on the health and safety of our employees and members.

While some financial intuitions may have temporarily closed branches or restricted access to lobby services, the Credit Union has remained committed to providing continuous access to all of our branch locations. However, based on recent trends, our branch lobby capacity will be further reduced to allow for safer CDC recommended social distancing guidelines.

Introducing New Services

As you may have noted over the past several months, the Credit Union has been hard at work implementing new solutions to provide you with expedited and contactless service options. These service enhancements are part of a wider, multi-year plan to invest in new technology and programs to better support our members.

Some examples of these include:

Important Safety Reminders

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Credit Union has continued to adapt our facilities to support a safer environment for our members and employees.

Safety enhancements currently in effect at all branches:

  • Face coverings are required to be worn by all members and staff throughout their visit to our branch locations, without exception.
  • Plexiglas shields have been installed at all teller stations and lobby desks to provide further protection during member interaction.
  • A concierge system has been implemented at high-volume locations to manage capacity limits and allow members to wait comfortably in their cars for the next available staff member.
  • Security staff are greeting members at the front doors to help ensure an orderly flow of individuals entering our branches.
  • Floor markers have been placed in all branches to ensure proper social distancing.
  • To safeguard the health and safety of our members, lobby restrooms and water fountains remain closed to the public.

Branch and Drive-Thru Service Hours

We have discontinued appointment requirements at all branches and members will be assisted on a first come, first serve basis. Due to reduced capacity limits within our branch lobbies, you may encounter longer wait times. We kindly request that you limit any additional guests during your visit, as this may cause further delays for other members.

For added convenience, we recommend leveraging our online and telephone service channels for services that can be conducted remotely and do not require an in-person visit.
