Coronavirus and Protecting Your Financial Health
How Umpqua’s digital tools can keep you safe.
The Coronavirus has reached our shores and we all have a million questions. How many times a day should I wash my hands? Do I need to change my daily routine? Is it safe to travel?
If you’re like most of us and you’re taking some precautions like staying home if you’re sick and avoiding crowded places, we have some good news. We make it easy to manage your finances from anywhere. In fact, our app, Umpqua Go-To, brings your banker (a live, human banker) right to you, so you can handle your banking from home.
At Umpqua Bank, our highest priority is ensuring the health and safety of our associates and our customers. We want you to know that we’re taking every necessary precaution to keep everyone who walks into our stores safe. Our ultimate goal is to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone and to continue to serve your financial needs without interruption.
As we collectively work to contain the spread of the virus, there are a number of ways we can help each other stay safe. From common sense health tips to financial tools that don’t require you to leave the comfort of your own home, here are a few suggestions to keep in mind in the weeks and months ahead.
Common Sense Health Prevention
Oregon Health & Science University recently sent a note reminding us that “the virus is most likely spread like other respiratory viruses, so the care that you would normally take to avoid catching the flu is a good place to start for preventing the spread of COVID-19.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are a number of ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These include:
- Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Staying home when you are sick.
- Covering your mouth or sneeze with a tissue then immediately throw your tissue in the trash.
- Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom.
It's also a good idea to review the CDC’s complete list of preventative actions.
