As Connecticut's positive coronavirus cases continue to rise, and Red Alerts are issued, some area businesses are choosing to proactively roll back the public's access to some of the location's buildings and services. I've been a customer of Thomaston Savings Bank for years, and I've just received an e-mail from their Senior Vice President,  announcing that they are going to be temporarily closing 6 of their bank locations in the greater Waterbury area as a precautionary measure to protect their team, and our community.

Just this past Monday, October 26, 2020, two Thomaston Savings Bank locations in Waterbury had already been closed to walk-in service. This business model will now be expanding to 4 other locations starting next Monday, November 2, 2020.

The e-mail from SVP Todd Burton of Thomaston Savings Bank states:

Dear Valued Customer:

As we continue to see an uptick in COVID-19 cases, we are taking additional precautions to protect the health and well-being of our team, customers, and community in the areas the State has classified as Red Alert status. Except by appointment only, we are temporarily closing the following branch lobbies for walk in service.

Currently closed for walk-in services:

Our drive-up, ATM, and night depository services at all locations remain open, and as always, our online and mobile banking are available to you 24/7

The e-mail continues to go on to state that Thomaston Savings bank will continue to monitor and make adjustments to the availability of their walk-in services as necessary, and they urge you to check out their website, or call 855-344-1874 if you have any questions.
