"The safety of our staff and our customers is paramount as we work towards relaxing restrictions for in-lobby vists.  We ask that customers practice social distancing and wear face coverings when able, especially in high traffic areas.  High touch surfaces will be sanitized regularly, and we will limit the number of people in our lobbies to promote proper social distancing," said Rich Montgomery, President & CEO.  "Appointments for Loans or New Accounts can also be made to reduce wait times in lobbies.  We appreciate your understanding as we work to meet everyone's needs during the COVID-19 pandemic."

Customers are asked to continue to utilize drive-thrus, as well as mobile and online banking options whenever possible.  Drive-thru hours remain unchanged at all FNB locations.

"Since 1903, FNB has been built on the foundation of being good members of the community.  This principle will continue to guide us through these trying times," added Montgomery.
