All lobbies will re-open on Tuesday, June 9 except Lorain, Baumhart, and Wadsworth, S. Lyman Street. The Fairlawn branch will be closed on Wednesdays.  The Wadsworth, S. Lyman Street branch will be open for drive-through service beginning June 1.

As many businesses being to re-open, GenFed is planning on opening most of our lobbies on June 9. We will continue to monitor data and recommendations, adjusting as necessary, in order to ensure that we do the right thing – for your family and ours.

All night drops will re-open on June 2. In all locations we will continue to open an hour later and close an hour earlier on Tuesday and Wednesday as well as close for lunch in Centralia temporarily as we continue to keep our teams safe, healthy and able to serve you.  See below for a list of temporary hours.

Thank you for your continued patience throughout this journey as we have been ensuring wellness to avoid service disruptions. In the spirit of distancing today for a healthier tomorrow, we ask that you consider making transactions via alternative methods to limit exposure to one another. We offer drive-throughs, phones, ATMs, online banking, mobile apps, remote deposit and eSignatures for your use and safety. Visit our Remote Access Toolkit page on our website for more details.

We’re making the GenFed experience as safe as possible and here are a few things you can expect when we re-open.

  • Sanitation Stations will greet you upon entrance, please take advantage, and we’ll do the same prior to our visit with you.
  • We’ve made Personal Protective Equipment available to staff and are asking employees to conduct wellness checks before they begin working. Please, for the safety of all members and associates, do not visit the branch if you do not feel well.
  • Most employees will be wearing face masks to protect you and you are welcomed to make your own choice on wearing a mask. For safety and identification reasons, please be understanding if we ask that you lower your mask temporarily.
  • Protective plexiglass shields are being used where face to face transactions occur to protect you and us.
  • Each location will have signs posted communicating maximum occupancy with clearly marked, socially distanced areas to stand. Each location will also have designated waiting areas outside of the branch. If these waiting areas are at capacity, please remain in your vehicle until a spot opens. For all of our safety, we kindly ask that no additional parties enter the lobby if possible.
  • We encourage you to bring your own pens. We will also be sanitizing all GenFed pens after each use.
  • All work areas, door handles, desks, and drive-up canisters will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected at regular intervals throughout the day.
  • Public access to branch restrooms will be closed.
  • Offerings of beverages and candy will be unavailable.
  • While we won’t be shaking hands to greet you during this outbreak, we are still here to provide the same level of service.
