Local banks close lobbies to customers

All Navarre area banks have or are planning to close lobbies to customers in an effort to fight the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. 

Kelly Kennedy is assistant manager at the Navarre Regions Bank. She said overall the change has been manageable. 

“It’s actually been quite well received. People have been very receptive and understanding,” she said. 

Bank staff have also reported additional cleaning procedures and sanitizing of hands following contact with deposits and other items. 

Most banks are still allowing face-to-face meetings by appointment only. Kennedy explained that even if a person makes an appointment, they will be screened at the door prior to being allowed in the bank building.

  • Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union’s Gulf Breeze branch is closed until further notice. Bank lobbies will close to the public beginning March 21. 
  • Beach Community Bank lobbies are closed until further notice. Customers are being directed to drive-through or digital options. Face-to-face meetings are by appointment only.
