Bank of America recently confirmed in an email that some of the mega bank’s branches are closing in the Central Florida region due to the ongoing global health crisis.
Bank of America would not confirm if the closures were because employees or customers had tested positive for COVID-19. Florida has seen a big surge in new cases, which now total more than 269,811 since March 1.
“Like many businesses operating right now, we have been balancing the need to stay open in as many locations as possible with the health and wellbeing of our employees – which at times will cause us to temporarily close a financial center,” a Bank of America spokesman said. “We plan to re-open impacted financial centers in Central Florida and elsewhere as soon as possible, as we feel an immense responsibility to our clients and communities as an essential business.”
In Osceola County, these are the Bank of America branches that we understand will be affected by the closing announcement.
Buena Ventura Lakes, 2500 Simpson Road, Kissimmee, FL 34744
The Loop, 1200 W. Osceola Parkway, Kissimmee, FL 34741
