As with other larger employers and customer-facing organizations, Berkshire Bank is carefully monitoring the situation regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), with a particular focus on public health guidance offered by the CDC and state officials. We are reaching out to make you aware of our activities and preparations in light of the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  Our number one priority is the safety of our customers, employees and the broader community. 
 
Given the current unpredictable nature of the spread of COVID-19, and in an abundance of caution, Berkshire Bank has implemented the following practices immediately:
 
  • We have increased our overnight cleaning activities to ensure frequently touched areas are being disinfected and sanitized.
  • We have implemented social distancing techniques to minimize the typical face-to-face contact by utilizing teleconference calls and flexible workspaces. We have suspended non-essential business travel for our employees and have asked that inter-company meetings be conducted via teleconference.  In addition, we kindly ask all of our customers to help us maintain a handshake-free zone at all Berkshire Bank locations.
  • We have asked employees who feel ill to stay home.  In addition, if an employee needs to stay home to care for a family member affected by the COVID-19, we are providing additional  paid sick days through June 30, 2020.
  • We have convened a team of senior leaders who meet daily to discuss the situation and stand ready to take additional steps, if necessary.
  • We have measures in place to ensure our operations can effectively continue so that we can provide our customers uninterrupted service.  Berkshire Bank already had robust and detailed business continuity plans in place.
