Local Regions branch temporarily closed

Customers who bank with Regions are being greeted with a “Branch Closed” sign at the Douglas Avenue Branch in Brewton.

The closure of the branch is being done out of precaution and is for the safety of employees and customers, according to Jeremy King, senior vice president of public relations for Regions Bank.

“Regions’ top priority is the health and well-being of our customers and associates,” King said. “The Brewton location temporarily closed as a precaution after we learned of a potential COVID-19 exposure from an individual who spent time in the branch. We will reopen this branch as soon as possible. We also encourage customers to take advantage of our online, mobile and ATM banking options. Rest assured, in cleaning our facilities, Regions follows precautions that meet or exceed guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Any associates impacted by a potential COVID exposure will remain on paid quarantine leave and will not return to work until appropriate conditions have been met.”
