What changes have you made to assist your customers during COVID-19? Initially, we serviced all of our Customer needs through drive-thru only services. It was a different experience not having customers in our lobbies, but one that was necessary to keep our customers and employees safe during these uncertain times. Over the past several months, we opened our lobbies on a limited basis. To assure everyone’s safety, we are allowing 5 customers in our lobbies at a time. We will continue to monitor our COVID-19 policies as additional guidance comes.
