Member Update – City of Hamilton Branches
Friday December 11, 2020
New Public Health Measures
On Friday December 4th, the Medical Officer of Health for the City of Hamilton issued special new instructions in the battle against rising case numbers in the area. While these location-specific initiatives may seem challenging, it’s about all of us doing what we need to do in this region to help fight the spread of COVID-19.
For City of Hamilton Branches which include the Ancaster, Barton Street, Stoney Creek and Upper Wentworth branches, the following measures are now in place:
You will be safely greeted at the entrance by a staff member and will be asked screening questions. A mask or face covering is also required in accordance with the city bylaw for entrance and we ask that you use the provided hand sanitizer before proceeding into the branch. We regret that members who do not pass screening will be advised that they cannot enter the branch and that they should self-isolate and seek assessment and testing.
Member Capacity Limits
We now have also implemented member capacity limits at each branch location. If the limit is reached the you may be advised to momentarily wait outside. We respectfully remind you to please not attend any branch if you are feeling unwell. You are always welcome to call your branch or our Member Solutions Centre for options and assistance in serving your financial needs without visiting a branch.
We thank you for your continued patience, support and cooperation with these required measures in the battle against COVID-19.
