COVID-19 Update

March 24, 2020 SFM News & Announcements

As many of you are aware, the State of Ohio is requiring all non-essential business to close until April 6, 2020 to help deter the spread of COVID-19. Smith-Feike-Minton, Inc./SFM Insurance is considered an essential business and will continue to be open serving our communities.

On Thursday, 70% of our employees began to work remotely from the safety of their own homes. If you visit, you will continue to experience social distancing and hand sanitizer is readily available. We continue to request that you visit us only if absolutely necessary and use our drop boxes to make a premium payment. For those more vulnerable to COVID-19, please visit us between 8:00 am and 9:00 am or call to make an appointment. Your protection is the utmost importance to us.

Unfortunately, during a time like this, cyber criminal activity begins to increase. We have included a link to a News Brief with tips on how to protect yourself from cyber criminals.

As we all settle into our new routines at home, our mental toughness may be challenged. We have included a link to an article from our Live Well, Work Well series providing some tips on how to maintain our mental well-being while house bound.

For our commercial clients, we have found that our local Chamber of Commerce have excellent resources on their websites regarding COVID-19. Rather than repeat the information, you can follow the links to directly access the information.
