Coronavirus: We’re Here to Help

Open Letter From Our CEO, Dan Schrider

This is a complicated and unique moment in time for all of us. When the coronavirus situation began to unfold, Sandy Spring Bank quickly implemented our business continuity plans to ensure the health and safety of our employees, clients, and business and community partners. And that remains our top priority.

We continue to encourage everyone to heed to the guidance from our state and federal health officials. As a company, we have made and will continue to make the necessary adjustments to our operations, while serving your banking needs in the most prudent way.

To that end, you can:

  • Call us with any questions or concerns at 800.399.5919. We ask for your patience in advance if you experience longer than usual wait times.
  • Set up a special appointment with one of our bankers to discuss any financial need you may have.
  • Take advantage of our online and mobile banking so you can bank with us remotely. You can also open a new account online.
  • Visit, our special website section, for all of this information and for other important coronavirus-related announcements.

Sandy Spring Bank has been part of this community for more than 150 years, and we have helped our clients through challenging times before. We are committed to using our experience to serve you in the best way we can and to continue to earn and keep your trust. 

Let’s please remember that everyone in our community is grappling with this in some way. Each personal situation is unique, so the virus—or even the potential of it—will affect everyone differently. Every day we have a choice to show empathy and an opportunity to be an encouragement to someone else —seize that moment whenever we can and be a bright spot to someone who needs it. 

We are grateful for all of our employees, clients, and partners during this unprecedented time, and we thank you for your ongoing trust in Sandy Spring Bank.

We end this message with a call for grace. Together, we will get through this.

With Gratitude,

Daniel Schrider Signature
