At First Citrus Bank, the health and safety of our clients, associates and community is our priority. For this reason, we encourage our clients to bank as safely as possible. Our drive-thru locations remain open to serve your banking needs. Our lobbies are open by appointment at this time. Lobby guidelines include mandatory face masks, hand sanitizing and social distancing. Below are some enhanced safety measures in place at each First Citrus Bank branch:
- Hand sanitizer located on teller stations and throughout our lobbies
- All clients and FCB associates required to wear masks while inside
- Monitoring our branch lobbies to ensure social distance is being practiced
- Enhanced cleaning of common areas
- Reduced lobby seating and other furniture
- Sneeze guards at every teller station
- Frequent hand washing
As a reminder, First Citrus Bank has many tools to help you continue to bank while practicing social distancing.

This week, the President signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). Among other provisions, the CARES Act created the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) specifically for small businesses and non-profits. Under the PPP, eligible borrowers can access government backed, potentially forgivable loans through SBA approved banks and lenders, to maintain payroll, retain employees, and stay current on lease and utility payments. First Citrus Bank is an SBA Preferred Lender and works directly with the Small Business Administration (SBA).
Beginning on Monday, March 23, 2020 our drive-thrus will be open from Monday through Friday 9:00am to 4:00pm while continuing to limit lobby access for all branch locations to keep our clients and associates safe.
In order to minimize health risks to our associates, clients and community, we are limiting lobby access for all branch locations and conducting business through our drive-throughs - which will remain open normal business hours. These changes will go into effect Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
We launched our COVID-19 preparedness plan earlier this week as part of our bank-wide business continuity efforts.
