The COVID-19 outbreak is a rapidly evolving situation. We have been closely monitoring the latest guidance and making changes along the way. Protecting the health and safety of our colleagues while remaining fully functional for our clients is our top priority.
As most of you are aware, much of the Bay Area is currently operating under a “Shelter in Place” order. This order is expected to stay in place until at least April 7th. As a Bank, California Bank of Commerce is considered an essential service and therefore all banking services and offices remain open.
We understand that many of you are facing significant disruptions to your businesses and have been forced to change your day to day activities. Our relationship managers and support staff remain fully accessible to help you navigate the financial implications of this challenging time.
Through careful guidance from the CDC and other governmental agencies, we have strategically divided our employees to work in our offices and remotely. We have the technology in place to remain highly responsive to your needs, and the electronic tools to allow you to continue to access bank services securely and remotely. We are happy to assist you if you have not used these tools in the past.
Thank you for continuing to place your trust in us as your banking partner. Please reach out if we can be of help in any way.
