“It’s obvious that this continues to be a very fluid situation and we take the guidance from the federal government, the Centers for Disease Control, and our state and local governments very seriously. We believe this decision allows us to create an increase in social distance between our staff and clients, which we hope will help ‘flatten the curve’ and reduce the potential exposure to the virus,” according to Anders M. Tomson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Chemung Canal Trust Company.
The bank indicated that, while the main office building is closed, employees remain accessible to clients through telephone and email, and teller transactions will continue to occur through the main office drive-up teller windows.
“In an effort to reduce the density within our facilities we have employees working from other bank locations or remotely through a secured computer network. That being said, we remain committed to continuing to serve as a trusted financial advisor to our clients. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our employees either directly, via phone or email, or through our Contact Center, @ (800) 836-3711,” Tomson said.
The bank’s website (www.chemungcanal.com) and mobile banking app will remain fully functional, allowing clients the ability to electronically complete transactions and access their accounts, 24/7.
“We apologize for the inconvenience this decision may create for our customers and our staff, but we believe this allows us to continue to provide essential banking services to our clients and our communities, while at the same time helping create a banking environment that reduces potential exposure to this virus,” Tomson said.
