Bank opening hours from 22 to 28 June: Bank of America, Citi, Wells Fargo

The United States have allowed businesses to reopen in a bid to jump start the struggling economy that's been battered by the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns. Although many enterprises were forced to close their doors, banks, as essential businesses, were kept open, sometimes with limited hours, due to their vital role in the economy.

Now, after having more time to adapt, banks are altering their business hours to try to suit their individual clients and the major players have been working directly with state governors to modify their rules on controlling the amount of people that work in each branch how many people are allowed to come in. There has also been a big push for mobile and online services to be taken advantage of. Let's consider a few of the banks.

Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo has remained open during the coronavirus pandemic but are 'cautiously adjusting' how they serve their customers safely. Many branches continue to expand their business hours to better assist you and the availability and hours of operation status can be accessed depending on where you live. There is also an option to meet with a banker by making an appointment and thus avoiding the need to wait in line.

Their advice is to use their remote service for 24/7 peace of mind calling it the 'fastest, most convenient access for many of your banking needs.'

Banking online: Check balances, pay bills, transfer money, set up alerts
Deposit checks by phone: It's as easy as snapping a photo with the Wells Fargo Mobile® app
Send and receive money: Move money within minutes between friends and family with Zelle®
Tap to pay: At checkout, you can conveniently pay with your digital wallet

CitiBank

With over 105 branches across the United States, Citi are one of the most frequented banks in the country. They changed their business hours during the outbreak and closed some branches. Your state/location is important so their advice is to plan ahead.
