Continuing COVID-19 Safeguards
May 11, 2020
Credit Union 1 continues to implement measures and institute safeguards to ensure a safe environment for employees, clients, and members.
CU1 has instituted an employee health screening process whereby CU1 engages with its team members each day to determine if they are experiencing any of the telltale signs of COVID-19. For example, screening to determine if employees have a fever and other COVID-19 symptoms. In the event we have a team member that is symptomatic or tests positive, CU1 requires the team member follow the CDC’s guidance regarding self-isolation. In addition to requiring our employees comply with the following safeguards, we’re taking enhanced personal hygiene measures to comply with the CDC’s recommendations which are hi-lighted below in the symbol chart – please do so as well.

Be Aware of Coronavirus Scams
While we all endure the impact of COVID-19 together, Credit Union 1 wishes to remind you to Stop, Look and Think! Scammers will use any vulnerability they can for an opportunity to phish for sensitive information that can lead to financial loss and burden.
As a reminder to our members, Credit Union 1 will not call, email or text you asking for personal identifying information. If you are unsure who is on the phone, ask for their extension and always call 800.252.6950 or visit our website and send us a secure message through Online Banking.
In addition, the United States Government will not call you personally to threaten arrest or tax withholdings if you refuse to pay them by purchasing gift cards, providing your debit/credit card information over the phone or send a wire.
Scammers are sophisticated. They use illegal robocalls to pitch everything from scam Coronavirus treatments to work-at-home schemes. They’ll send emails with real information or information that is familiar to you hoping you will click on their link to infect your computer with malicious malware. They’ll use fake email addresses and spoof phone numbers or texts to get you to share valuable personal information – like account numbers, Social Security Numbers, or your login IDs and passwords to steal your money, your identity or both.
