Coronavirus Update — 3/16/20
Please be aware that your Credit Union has been notified of a possible COVID-19 (coronavirus) exposure that took place at our branches in Taos, South Eubank, and Juan Tabo. In an abundance of caution, we are temporarily closing these branches (the Taos drive-up will maintain normal business hours) for a deep cleaning. We are following CDC and the Department of Health’s guidelines and asking the staff to self-quarantine for 14 days. We will notify you as each of these branches re-open.
An Important Message from Your Credit Union
At Nusenda Credit Union, the health and well-being of our members, our employees, and the communities we serve is our top priority. With the news of New Mexico residents having tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the directives from state authorities, Nusenda is taking steps to ensure members and employees remain as safe as possible. With that in mind, I would like to share with you how Nusenda is responding to the situation.
We will continue to follow the guidance recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New Mexico Department of Health (DOH). We are working to create a safe environment in our branches by offering sanitizing wipes and hand gel for your convenience. You may notice fewer handshakes in the branches and tellers wearing gloves when handling cash. We are cleaning our branches more frequently both during and after business hours. We have suspended all work-related travel and have instituted a framework requiring employees to self-quarantine if they have traveled to a high-risk area or are exposed to anyone with symptoms; these employees will not be negatively impacted financially.
Nusenda offers many secure, convenient ways to access your accounts without visiting a branch. We are encouraging you to take advantage of our Mobile and Internet Banking services, where you have 24/7 access to transfer money, pay bills, and deposit checks using Mobile Deposit. ATMs are also available anytime. In addition, with recent school and business closures, we understand you may be financially impacted. We are here to help — our Financial Consultants and Call Center representatives can share our unique programs designed to support our members during times like these.
With the announcement of the University of New Mexico expanding spring break by three weeks, we will be closing our Lobo Landing Branch on their campus. To support employees with dependent children, we are investigating ways to allow staff to take leave while their children are unexpectedly out of school. Should any branch operating hours be affected by this decision, we will notify you through social media (Twitter, Facebook) and on this page.
We are encouraging our members to follow best practices outlined by the CDC and DOH:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Wash or sanitize your hands often.
- Stay home if you are sick and avoid those who are at high risk (elderly, immune compromised).
- If you have any symptoms of the virus or have traveled to a high-risk area please take advantage of our many convenient mobile and internet banking channels. Our Call Center at 505-889-7755 (800-347-2838 outside of the Albuquerque area) can help you perform many of the same transactions you would do in our branches.
Nusenda is striving to support you, our employees, and our communities through this time of crisis. Please visit this page and our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook) to receive the most timely information as your Credit Union responds to the unfolding events.
Thank you for your membership.
