Customer Announcement: COVID-19 Readiness March 13, 2020

Like businesses and families throughout the state and nation, the team at Forward is constantly monitoring the developing situation with COVID-19. The center of all our decisions will be the safety of our customers and employees.


Our Preparation

Forward has a comprehensive plan in place to ensure banking operations continue with as little disruption as possible. We’ve been working with our vendors, reviewing staff needs, and putting contingency plans in place. These include remote access capabilities, alternate work locations for employees, and continuity plans for critical operations if needed.

Branch Access and Safety

We are making every effort to maintain regular operations throughout our network of locations. To maintain a safe environment for our customers to conduct their transactions, we have implemented additional cleaning and sanitizing procedures for all areas of our facilities. Our staff is well educated on what to look for with COVID-19 and is encouraged to stay at home if they or family members are ill to prevent the spread to colleagues or customers.
