Dear Community First Customers,

As you all know, the spread of the COVID-19 virus, across the globe, and now into our own state of Missouri, has had an effect that no one could have imagined, even a short time ago. Our response to this pandemic has been very fluid over the past few weeks, as we have monitored this situation closely, and we have taken action as it has been warranted. This includes daily sanitization of our lobby and any customer contact areas.

Further, we have encouraged hand-washing, the use of anti-bacterial hand sanitizer and encouraged our employees to pay attention to their health, including taking their own temperature, to assure that they have not acquired any illnesses, whether related to the Coronavirus, or otherwise. I am very pleased to report that none of our employees have contracted the virus, or shown any symptoms that would require a test.

In light of recommendations from both the Missouri Bankers Association, and the Missouri Governor’s office, we have made the decision to shut down the lobbies of all our bank branches, effective Thursday, March 19th, 2020. The bank lobbies will remain closed until further notice, or until we feel confident that the virus is clearly in decline across our area. Please call your local location, to schedule an appointment, if you find it necessary to access your safety deposit box, or if you have a real estate transaction scheduled to close during this reduced-access period. Our drive-through lanes will remain open during this time, and our ATM’s will be available as well. Please remember that deposits can be made through any of our ATM’s located at our bank branch facilities. As always, you can access your accounts through our online banking, at www.cfbankco.com.

We are very hopeful that we will be able to return to normal services, as soon as possible. In the interim, we ask that each of you take particular care in monitoring your health and the health of your loved ones. This is a time when everyone needs to work together to overcome an extraordinary event that affects all of us, and we have faith that the people of our area can set an example for the rest of the country in doing so.

Thank you for choosing Community First Banking Company as your bank, of choice. We are here to help you through this difficult and stressful time.

Sincerely,

Michael Hoff, President & CEO
