A Note from Bryan Bruns Regarding COVID-19

At 2:00 p.m. yesterday, March 25, 2020, Governor Walz issued an executive order to “Stay at Home” effective from March 27 – April 10.

While the health and safety of our employees and customers is vital, and we strongly encourage all our customers to delay unnecessary in-person transactions at this time, we want you to know this “Stay at Home” order does provide exemptions for essential services.  As a financial services organization, Lake Central (Banking, Insurance & Investments) is classified as one of the essential services.  As such, our employees will continue to be available to transact business.  We continue to urge as many of you as possible to use our digital and drive through services so we can all do our part to slow the spreading of this pandemic, by reducing our in-person encounters.

Some of Our Actions To Date:

  • We have several of our non-customer facing employees working in remote locations and have physically moved others within our facilities.
  • We have continued our increased cleaning activities at our ATM’s as well as inside our banking facilities, for everyone’s protection.
  • We have set up video conferencing for periodic leadership meetings including our board of directors meeting held just last week.
  • We are closely monitoring, and participating in some of the discussions of, the relief bill(s) which are being passed in Washington DC.

We continue to evaluate business continuity as updates are provided concerning COVID-19 and will consider alterations to how Lake Central provides services to customers should the need arise. Please contact us at 320-274-8216 for questions about your financial needs.

Thank you for the trust you place in us as we continue to serve our customers.

 

Sincerely,

Bryan Bruns

President and CEO
