We find ourselves in unprecedented times! 

A Message from Our CEO

The concerns over the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) have caused the State of California to impose a “stay-at-home” order for many Californians. While we hold the health and safety of our employees and our members as our highest priority, as an “Essential Service” we will remain open.

We care deeply about the well-being of everyone in our communities and have taken extraordinary measures to raise the awareness and educate our staff and membership on best practices to help prevent the spread of (COVID-19), as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

For your health safety, we have provided additional sanitizing supplies in our branches and increased all sanitation efforts inside our facilities. In addition, we also ask if you do come into a branch location to maintain the 6 foot social distancing recommendation by the CDC.  

Social Distancing, Please stand 6 feet apart in line.

We will update our website if branch closures or any additional changes in hours become necessary and provide a list at sierracentral.com with any affected locations.

Be Safe-Fraudsters are always looking for vulnerable times to strike! 

Be safe with large cash withdrawals or having large amounts of cash on hand. 

Take extra precautions with emails, text messages and phone calls from unfamiliar sources, especially during this period of uncertainty. Fraudsters have launched Coronavirus-themed phishing attacks to deliver malware that steal your computer credentials and trick you into sharing your personal and financial information. They try to trick you into thinking they are from legitimate sources like the Center for Disease Control (CDC) or the World Health Organization (WHO) but they are not, and they link you to fake websites.

Be safe and stay healthy,
