Hudson Valley Credit Union, a $5.3 billion institution located in Poughkeepsie, was forced to close two branches after employees tested positive for the coronavirus. Employees at both branches were forced to self-quarantine.

Credit Union Times reports on March 25, a Carmel branch employee reported COVID-19 symptoms and self-quarantined. The next day, a Pleasant Valley branch employee was not experiencing any coronavirus symptoms but self-quarantined as a precautionary measure, HVCU said in a prepared statement.

On March 30, the Carmel branch employee tested positive for COVID-19, and on April 4, the Pleasant Valley branch employee also tested positive.

Subsequently, HVCU closed the branches. As a precautionary measure, the other branch employees were told to self-quarantine and seek medical advice from their doctor.

The branches are undergoing an “extremely deep clean” with disinfecting agents approved by the New York Department of Health. One will open next week with the other opening on April 20.
