Bank of Louisiana and COVID19

An updated response to the COVID19 situation from Bank of Louisiana President, Jim Ross:

Dear Valued Bank of Louisiana Customers:

As the concerns with the COVID-19/Corona Virus continue to evolve, at Bank of Louisiana, the health and welfare of our customers and staff are of the utmost importance. With the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and as an abundance of caution, we will be providing drive up service only at all of our locations. It is our hope that this action will help curtail the spread of the infection and ensure the safety of our customers and staff alike.

Effective March 24, 2020, we will be closing all Bank of Louisiana lobbies to the public until further notice. Our Drive-ups and night drops will remain open and available for use with normal business hours in effect. Bank of Louisiana has a multitude of options available to you to meet your banking needs:

  • Internet Banking and Bill Pay
  • Mobile Banking
  • Mobile Deposit Capture
  • Telephone Banking at 1-800-366-9053
  • ATM’s at both locations as well as Abel’s at the Bridge, Tobacco Plus, Bowling Green (roundabout) and Clarksville Apple Shed.

If you are not currently enrolled in our online services, you can self-enroll online for many of these options. If you need assistance, please call us at 573-754-5517.

To open an account, speak to a loan office, access your safe deposit box or set up an appointment for any other banking need, please contact us at 573-754-5517 or 573-754-6253.

Our goal is to restore full and normal banking services as soon as possible.  We will continue to monitor the conditions and evaluate our response and operations daily.  We will communicate our actions, and any change to our banking services through every medium available.

As a community bank, we realize the impact COVID-19 may have on our small business owners, customers and neighbors.  We are hopeful that these actions will help in changing the track of the virus. Together we can work through this and hopefully come out stronger and healthier in the end.

Many criminals are taking advantage of the current Coronavirus situation. Here are some tips to help you keep the scammers at bay:

  • Don’t click on links from sources you don’t know. They could download viruses onto your computer or device.

  • Watch for emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or experts saying they have information about the virus. For the most up-to-date information about the Coronavirus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

  • Ignore online offers for vaccinations. There currently are no vaccines, pills, potions, lotions, lozenges or other prescription or over-the-counter products available to treat or cure Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) — online or in stores.

  • Do your homework when it comes to donations, whether through charities or crowdfunding sites. Don’t let anyone rush you into making a donation. If someone wants donations in cash, by gift card, or by wiring money, don’t do it.
