Coronavirus (COVID-19): What We're Doing

Computer rendering of coronavirus strain

Last Updated: Wednesday, April 8, 2020


As declared by Governor Evers, from Wednesday, March 25, 2020 through to April 24, 2020, the state of Wisconsin is under a “Safer at Home” order, limiting the types of travel and businesses that can operate during that time. As banks are required to provide essential business functions during this time, we are allowed to remain open to continue serving our community where possible. All of The Bank of New Glarus and Sugar River Bank Branches’ locations will continue to operate at during normal business hours, however, with restricted lobby access.


In order to do our part in eliminating the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we encourage you to use the drive-up windows, ATMs, Online Banking, BNG Mobile app, phone call, email, or Touch Tone Teller options for all your banking needs. If you must enter our lobbies in order to complete in-person transactions such as accessing a safety deposit box, opening a new account, or signing loan documents, we may grant access, but an appointment must first be made by contacting us by phone (608-527-5205), email at, or by filling out our Contact Us form. With respect to our lobby closures, we are continuing to offer our full line of products and services to new and existing customers. If you're looking to buy a house, you can even apply for a mortgage online.

We will closely monitor the situation updates and adjust our plans in accordance with state and federal health officials’ recommendations. When that happens, we will be sure to communicate our updated plans with you.
