Review our COVID-19 tools and resources.
We at Wilson & Muir Bank continue to closely monitor the developing Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak with our priority being the safety of our employees, customers and local communities. Following the directives of government and health officials, from the federal, state and local levels we are taking additional measures to reduce the instances of social interaction and will be limiting deposit related services to the drive-thru lanes only. Effective Friday, March 20, access to our branch lobbies will be by appointment only. We will be fully staffed to accommodate your banking needs for new accounts, loans and related services. Please do not hesitate to contact us. We greatly value your business and assure you we will make every effort to accommodate your schedule.
We recognize that many of you may be negatively affected by impacts of this global outbreak. Our focus is and has always been for the safety and well-being of our customers and employees. We stand ready to work with those experiencing financial difficulty as a result of the pandemic.
For the past 155 years, Wilson & Muir Bank & Trust Co. has weathered other crises and economic difficulties. With your patience and assistance, we will get through this as well.

We are pleased to share with you news that will bring financial relief to many small businesses and individuals that have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Wilson & Muir Bank will be working with the SBA to provide our business clients with access to the two new programs, the Payroll Protection Program (PPP) and the Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL).

How to Avoid Online Scams
Unfortunately, criminals will use pandemic fears as a platform for financial scams. These can include bogus emails, text messages, phone calls and social media posts. Please be advised that Wilson & Muir Bank will NEVER contact a client and ask for any personal information. Further, do not respond to any suspicious text messages or phone calls without first verifying the source. If you think that you may have responded to a bogus message, please contact your local branch office or our toll-free number immediately with details.
