BLACK HILLS ENERGY COMPANY

Black Hills Energy’s number one priority is the continued safety of its customers and employees. To ensure the ability to provide safe, reliable electric and natural gas services, Black Hills Energy has adjusted its response to focus on immediate community needs and has measures in place to ensure it continues to serve its customers in a way that is safe for everyone.

“Black Hills Energy is committed to doing its part to slow the spread of COVID-19 while proving an essential service that keeps us all warm and protected,” said Marc Ostrem, Vice President of Mines and Power Delivery. “To ensure everyone’s wellbeing, we’ve activated an essential response plan aimed to do both.”

To date, Black Hills Energy has not experienced any significant impacts on the delivery of energy to its nearly 1.3 million customers across its eight state footprint. The plan is designed to maintain critical electric and natural gas services for all customers. Under these new guidelines, multiple services will continue including responding to emergency calls, mandated construction work, maintaining a safe system and starting service for a customer.

To safely perform these critical needs, Black Hills Energy is taking extra steps to protect its customers and its employees, including:

• Crews will continue to respond to all emergency calls and will be wearing appropriate personal protective equipment and following health practices as recommended by the CDC and other health organizations.

• Paid leave will be provided for employees who tests positive or are put under quarantine.

• Certain employees may enter into sequestration based on several criteria that may vary by location, for example, government shelter in place orders, percentage of the local population that has tested positive for COVID-19, or a reduction of the available workforce. Employee groups across Black Hills Energy who provide critical functions needed to operate a very complex electrical system and provide essential gas service are those that may be called to action.

To support our customers who may be impacted by the nation’s response to COVID-19, Black Hills Energy is temporarily suspending nonpayment disconnections for our customers. We realize that due to possible extended periods of isolation, customers may face financial hardships effecting their ability to timely pay their energy bills. We offer various assistance options to our customers such as, payment arrangements, budget billing and medical extensions. Visit www.blackhillsenergy.com for more information about these programs.

The Emergency Department is considered a high risk area in the hospital. No visitors will be permitted in the Emergency Department. Family will be asked to wait outside in the waiting room adjacent to the Emergency Department where they will be given status updates during the treatment of their family member. Minor (pediatric) patients will be allowed one parent or guardian to stay with them when appropriate.

Third Floor Medical Surgical Unit

Patients with COVID-19, or those suspected to have COVID-19, are treated in our Medical/Surgical Unit located on the third floor of the hospital. No visitors will be permitted on the third floor. Routine updates will be provided to a designated family member by phone.

COVID-19 is easily transmittable. The hospital has treated known COVID-19 patients. When possible, only the patient should enter into the building. One support person is allowed to accompany patients in the hospital for ancillary services, like Lab and Imagining, as needed. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

CLOSED ~ March 16, 2020 through April 1, 2020

At Points West, we're continuing to evaluate the situation surrounding COVID-19. Serving our communties has always been our greatest privilege, so we will continue to provide the highest quality banking products and services throughout this pandemic. To help you keep your time away from home at a minium, we want to share the services we office - free for all customers - that you can take advantage of anywhere.

Mobile & Online Banking

If you haven't already, downloaeded our app from the App Store or Google Play. From the app, you can access all of your accounts, transfer funds, schedule transfers, report lost or missing cards, and even pay your monthly bills for services such as utlities or car payments. Alternatively, you can head to www.pwcbank.com to access your account online. These services are avaiable to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Mobile Deposits

Additionally, many of our customers have taken advantage of mobile check deposits. For those who haven't signed up yet, we've made the service available by default for every account. From the app, head to the deposit tab, enter the amount, and take a picture of your check - the app will give you direction every step of the way.

Contactless Payments

Cash carries germs. Our bankers have begun wearing gloves when handling currency, but we realize that's not practical for you every time you pull out your wallet. We recommend keeping your cash on hand to a minimum. Instead, opt for services such as Apple Pay or Google Pay to make transactions using your phone or smartwatch.

All you have to do is add your Points West card to whichever service you use, and you should be good to go!

COVID-19 Scams

Uncertainty can bring out the worst in people. Scammers will try to take advantage of fears spurred by Coronavirus. If you see an email, text, or any other form of communication from Points West asking you for personal details, be skeptical. If you're unsure it's us, please call your local brand and ask - we'll be able to clear things up for you.

Essential Business

Last but certainly not least, we want to assure you that, as a bank, we are an essential business during Stay-At-Home orders. We will continue our stragegy of hanling all transactions via drive-thru, night deposit, ATM and mobile or online banking. If you need to meet with a banker in person - and you're confident you're healthy - please contact your local banker to set up an in-person meeting. If you need anything, we are always hear for you.
