As always, the safety of our First Bank clients and employees is our highest priority. As such, due to the recent events surrounding COVID-19, First Bank has implemented added precautionary measures to help fight the spread of this disease and further protect our impacted communities. In light of recent events, we are implementing the following course of action:

  • Our branches and ATMs are cleaned daily as part of our normal course of business. We have increased those efforts by continuously disinfecting surfaces that are frequent points of contact, such as door handles, keyboards, PIN pads, ATM screens and many others, throughout the day.
  • Asking any employee with direct or indirect exposure to self-quarantine for the recommended period of time, while seeking medical attention from a qualified healthcare provider.
  • Educating our employees on COVID-19, encouraging self-monitoring for any associated symptoms, and asking employees to remain at home when ill.
  • Following the CDC's guidelines for prevention, including adhering to proper hygiene habits with the addition of maintaining additional cleaning and sanitation supplies at all locations.
  • Call our First Bank Service Center at 800-760-2265 on weekdays from 7 AM to 9 PM and on Saturdays from 9 AM to 5:30 PM (Central Time).
  • Branches are appointment only.
