States provide resources for financial institutions as coronavirus questions emerge

Leaders in Alabama, Florida and Georgia are coordinating responses to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Among plans being set forth are those for financial institutions to follow, if necessary. The LSCU leadership team will continue closely monitoring the situation.

In Alabama, Gov. Kay Ivey announced a Task Force of cabinet and state agency officials, as well as disease specialists.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is pledging transparency with the community and reminding citizens that the overall risk to the public remains low. Georgia also has announced the delay of its presidential primary from March 24 to May 19. 

On March 1, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 20-51, which directed Surgeon General Dr. Scott Rivkees to declare a public health emergency to better equip Florida with the resources needed to handle this public health threat.

See below for documents provided for financial institutions in each state, should they need to respond to the impact of the disease.
