Coronavirus Overview

The coronavirus disease 2019 (shortened to COVID-19) is cause for concern as it moves into nations around the globe.

At Aloha Pacific FCU, we are monitoring the situation for the safety of our members, employees and the general community. All branches remain operational, with the exception of the OTSECU branch, with heightened disinfecting measures and an emphasis on social distancing.

Here are suggested precautions to take to avoid catching or spreading any infectious disease:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unclean hands
  • Wash your hands often, with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds; or use sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol if soap and water are not available
  • Cover your mouth with tissue when coughing or sneezing and throw the tissue into the trash
  • Stay at home if you’re sick

Stay informed. For updates and detailed information about COVID-19, go to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/summary.html

Online, Mobile App Banking & More

While we welcome members to our branches, there are other convenient ways to bank with us:

Your Finances

Don’t panic. That’s one of the recommendations most financial experts offer whenever the stock market goes down instead of up.

The stock market is very nervous about the coronavirus and in the past has been jittery about many other health issues – and recovered as the crisis passed.

This crisis, too, will pass. China, the epicenter of the coronavirus, is already seeing a health recovery.

Prepare for the next downturn. The only sure thing about the stock market is that there WILL be ups and downs. Consider these tried-and-true long-term options:

  • Do you have an emergency fund – generally four to six months of living expenses?
  • Are your investments diversified so that you can weather a financial storm?
  • Will you create a budget so that you know exactly where your money is going – your income, expenses – taking into account your financial goals? You might consider cutting back on unnecessary expenses in order to save more money.
