General Background on COVID-19
If you’re looking for a reliable update on the virus, where it came from and what the US response has been so far, we refer you to this situation summary from the CDC – https://www.cdc.gov/
Decision About Upcoming Events
Following current NYS restrictions on large events, we have decided to reschedule the March 20th Farmer Neighbor Dinner. We are working on a new date and will have that out to folks ASAP. Additionally, our upcoming Coffee Connections will be held remotely via Zoom Meeting and if you are currently registered for next Tuesday’s Coffee Connection, we will email you the meeting invite. The March 25th After Hours at ESL Federal Credit Union will NOT take place.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have closed our physical location, HOWEVER, all staff are working remotely during normal business hours (8:30am – 4:30pm M – F) and are here to help you and your business in any way possible. Please do not hesitate to call (585) 243-2222 or email.
We will continue to monitor the situation and make announcements about additional events when or if there is a need.
Resources for Employers
We are facing an unprecedented situation and as employers we must be thinking proactively about how we will respond to it. The US Chamber has put together a great page of resources that can help you plan and communicate about COVID-19 https://www.uschamber.com/
A Final Note
Please update us on what is happening in your business in regards to COVID-19 and potential impacts. Ask questions that you may have – that will help guide us on future updates. Don’t hesitate to call our staff if we can help in any way.
While this particular situation is new, our community has faced many time of trial before. We will get through this one as well. We must support each other – especially the most at-risk population, be extra patient with people during this time, support our local businesses, and continue to work together.
