Due to concern around the spread of COVID-19, organizations nationwide are preparing for the possibility of an outbreak to ensure continued business services and a safe and healthy work environment for their employees. With your League membership, you have access to CU PolicyPro Model Policy 2195: Pandemic Influenza Preparedness & Response. This policy will provide your credit union with guidelines for management and staff to use in establishing and maintaining policies and procedures in order to prepare and respond to the onset of a potential influenza pandemic, including:

  • Role of your board of directors,
  • Role of your management team,
  • Planning for impact to credit union operations,
  • Planning for impact to employees and members,
  • Allocation of resources to protect employees and members during and outbreak,
  • Educating employees, and
  • Program testing.

You also have access to updated InfoSight guidance specific to pandemic and business continuity plans with your League membership. Under “Compliance Topics”, select “Security” and then “Business Continuity Planning.”

The League has also been in contact with other credit union leagues in states with reported cases of coronavirus and they have found these resources helpful:

We will continue to monitor the situation and share information to help you prepare in case the coronavirus spreads to Ohio. Unfortunately, you’ll also need to be extra cautious of scammers that may take advantage of the fears surrounding this virus. The Federal Trade Commission has compiled tips for dealing with recent and emerging scams that you can share with your staff and members to protect their money and personal information.
