Below you'll find updates related to Town & Country Credit Union's response to COVID-19.
March 25, 2020:
Following ongoing guidance from the CDC and state government, our lobbies will remain temporarily closed until further notice. Our Kenmare location lobby will remain open, however, and our Fargo Sanford location remains closed until further notice. Despite these lobby closures, we're still here to help you with whatever you may need. Check out the article linked in the previous update for more information.
March 23, 2020:
In a membership email and online article, we reminded members that their money is safe and accessible and that we're here to help during this time (Click here to read the full story). We also introduced two ways that we're helping members who are negatively impacted by COVID-19. Members now have the option to skip an upcoming loan payment* and/or withdraw funds from their CDs early with no penalty. Members can click here to complete the Skip a Loan Payment form. If you'd like to make a CD withdrawal, have questions or need additional assistance, call us at 1-800-872-6358 or fill out our Contact form and a member service representative will be in touch soon.
March 17, 2020:
Starting Wednesday, March 18 through Tuesday, March 31 all Town & Country locations, with the exception of Kenmare, will be drive-up only. Kenmare will maintain regular lobby hours. We have also cancelled the Minot Annual Meeting. These changes align with the newest guidance that came out yesterday to increase social distancing.
Please know that ensuring our members have consistent access to their funds is a top priority for us. We have contingency plans in place to ensure that we can continue providing vital operations.

March 16, 2020:
Our mission is to Positively Impact our members, our employees and our communities, and in order to do that we need to be responsible and proactive in considering their health and safety. We understand that you may be experiencing uncertainty and concern surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), as are we.
At this time, we’re making two significant changes that will affect some of our members.
- Due to proximity and in light of the recent visitor policies enacted by Sanford Health, our Town & Country Credit Union Sanford branch in Fargo will be closed Monday, March 16 – Tuesday, March 31.
- Based on guidance from the Center for Disease Control regarding avoiding large gatherings we are making changes to our scheduled Annual Meetings.
- The Fargo Annual Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, March 17 is cancelled. If you’ve purchased a ticket, your money will be refunded into your share savings account.
- Since our bylaws require an annual meeting each year in Ward County, the Minot meeting will proceed on Thursday, March 19 at the Moose Lodge but with a few important changes. There will no longer be a social, meal or prizes; only a business meeting that will still start at 7 p.m. If you’ve purchased a ticket to this meeting, your money will be refunded into your share savings account.
At this time our other branches remain open, but this could change. Please check townandcountry.org for updates. We have also implemented enhanced cleaning and other procedures to minimize the risk of transmission of the virus and related illnesses.
We want to affirm that ongoing access to your funds is a top priority. If you need credit union services but are concerned about coming into a branch, please consider:
