Here at CVNB, we are going to embody the spirit of all Kentuckians by reaching out to help our customers and employees with the relief packages outlined below. As we move forward I encourage each of you to be focused on the well-being and health of your family and loved ones, CVNB is prepared to provide flexibility and financial solutions that might arise from this pandemic,” said President & CEO, Elmo Greer.

CVNB is offering to defer certain loan payments for up to 90 days for business customers who have been impacted. Current CVNB business customers can reach out and request this flexibility by calling their loan officer.

Current CVNB residential mortgage and consumer loan customers may also be eligible for the Pandemic Relief Program.

Lexington Clinic launches telehealth services

Lexington Clinic announced Wednesday that established patients may schedule virtual visits with their provider. They may also reach out to their providers via the patient portal.

“At Lexington Clinic, the health and safety of our patients, providers and staff is our top priority,” said Dr. Andrew Henderson, CEO of Lexington Clinic, in a release. “We know that in the current COVID-19 scenario, many of our patients have ongoing medical needs, as well as the need for routine care. As we follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to keep our facilities safe and healthy, we understand the apprehension some of our patients may feel about visiting a healthcare facility at this time, especially those in higher risk categories. Hence, we have implemented telehealth services as an option for our patients to continue to provide high quality healthcare, while being sensitive to their concerns with regards to maintaining social distancing.”

The following specialties now offer telehealth services: primary care (all locations, including Lexington, Richmond, Jessamine County and Woodford County); pediatrics; allergy; cardiology; dermatology; endocrinology; ENT; gastroenterology; medical oncology; neurology; ophthalmology; orthopedics; podiatry; pulmonary; rheumatology; and urology.
