Howard Bank sets up Coronavirus Resource Center
Howard Bank has set up a Coronavirus Resource Center on its web site to update customers on changes to its operation because of the COVID-19 virus.
The web site, https://www.howardbank.com/coronavirus-resource-center, shares recommendations to help customers conduct banking in the safest way possible in this new health environment, as well as provide updates on what precautionary measures the bank is taking amid the pandemic.
The bank is actively testing its ability to operate with a significant percentage of its staff working from home not just for illness, but for precautionary self-quarantining.
The bank has augmented deep cleaning procedures at all branch locations and back offices. Hand sanitizer has been made readily available, ensuring branch teams and back-office personnel know the best practices recommended by the CDC. Some Howard County employees may also wear gloves, especially when handling money.
Also, the following branches will remain open during regular hours for drive-thru services only: Aberdeen, Centennial, Dundalk, Glen Burnie, Owings Mills, Parkville. Rising Sun, Timonium and White Marsh.
Three other branches in Bel Air, Canton and Snowden River will be open for customers on a “call ahead” basis who are unable to conduct banking needs via our mobile or online banking services and are unable to make it to one of our drive-thru locations.
Additionally, the Howard Bank Branches in Annapolis, Columbia Towers, and Remington will remain temporarily closed until further notice.
