CDC Issues COVID-19 Guidance for Financial Institutions

Employees of financial institutions face a low risk of exposure for COVID-19 if the institutions take precautions, such as shields at teller counters, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said last week.

The CDC has issued guidance for the opening of various facilities that have been closed due to the pandemic. While most of the bank and credit union document covers such now-common steps as employee screening and social distancing, some of the recommendations specifically address issues at financial institutions, such as credit unions.
