Last week we announced the closure of our branches out of an abundance of caution as one of our staff members has been exposed to a person who tested positive for the virus. We are happy to report that the staff member’s test came back negative. Therefore, starting tomorrow, Tuesday, March 23rd, we are reopening all three of our branches to our members and our community. We are, however, making slight changes to our hours of operations to comply with social distancing to continue to protect our members and employees.
Out of an abundance of caution, we are announcing that as of 1:00PM today, March 18th, 2020 we are closing all Lower East Side People’s Federal Credit Union branches. We have become aware that one of our employees has been in contact with one person who has tested positive for Coronavirus. This employee has not been tested yet and is not presenting symptoms. However, for the security of all employees and members, we are closing the credit until further notice.
As our nation moves to contain the spread of the COVID-19, we are making slight changes to our hours of operations and available in-person services to better comply with the most recent safety and social distancing guidelines. We are strongly committed to remain open and continue offering our members financial services during the times and at the locations that are most convenient for them. Please be mindful, however, that this schedule may change as more guidelines appear, so we encourage you to call or email us before coming to any of our branches
