Thank you for your patience during this challenging time. We appreciate our customers who have graciously discovered new ways to bank due to this unique situation. Your choice to bank with us is appreciated and we will never take it for granted.

Please be advised that COVID-19 may have been present at our Dinuba branch from Monday, August 24 to Friday, September 4 and our Ventura branch from Wednesday, September 2 to Tuesday, September 15. Bank of the Sierra has taken extensive steps to ensure the safety of our customers and employees. For more details, please click here.

We regularly review state, county, and city regulations as we plan when and how to reopen branch lobbies. Upon entering a reopened lobby, you will notice several steps have been taken with customer and employee safety in mind.

  • Only a limited number of people are allowed inside a lobby at any one time. These occupancy limits will vary by branch.
  • Social distancing stickers have been placed on lobby floors to help you maintain a six-foot distance from others inside the lobby.
  • All employees wear face masks for your safety. Due to a recent state order, the wearing of masks in public areas is required with limited exceptions. We have masks available if you want to use one.
  • Hand sanitizing stations are available for your use inside each lobby.
  • High-use areas are cleaned frequently.

Drive-through and walk-up windows may be available at branches where lobby services are unavailable. As always, online and mobile banking, as well as ATMs, will remain available for your banking needs.

For our business customers, if you need to speak with a bank representative in person once your local branch lobby reopens, please call our Customer Service Center at 1-888-454-BANK to schedule an appointment.

Thank you for choosing Bank of the Sierra. We can – and we will – get through this together.

  • You can use online banking 24/7 to check your balance, pay your bills, read your statements, transfer funds, and more.

  • Due to pending legislation that may be beneficial to our business customers, we have temporarily removed our online PPP loan forgiveness application portal to pause any additional applications. We are also offering customers who have applied for PPP loan forgiveness the ability to temporarily withdraw their application. Please visit for full instructions.
  • In keeping with program guidelines, Bank of the Sierra is no longer accepting applications for the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans. If your business already applied for a PPP loan through Bank of the Sierra, you can check your application status online.
