LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Bank of America has temporarily closed some of its banking locations in the Las Vegas valley due to staffing shortages amid the pandemic.

A representative for Bank of America says most of its financial centers are open in Southern Nevada but a few have been closed with not having enough workers to sufficiently maintain on-site services.

As of Wednesday evening, a total of 13 locations on the bank's website were said to be closed until further notice.

Those locations include:

-Airport Center: 6035 S. Eastern Avenue
-Bermuda/Windmill: 505 E. Windmill Lane
-Craig/Rancho: 4361 N. Rancho Drive
-Farm/Durango: 8450 W. Farm Road
-Fort Apache/Sahara: 2451 S. Fort Apache Road
-Paradise Valley: 1077 E. Sahara Avenue
-Plaza: 300 S. 4th Street
-Silverado/Bermuda: 410 E. Silverado Ranch Boulevard
-Southern Highlands: 4840 W. Cactus Avenue
-South Rainbow: 7280 S. Rainbow Boulevard
-Tropicana/Decatur: 4800 W. Tropicana Avenue
-Tropicana/Fort Apache: 4910 S. Fort Apache Road
-University: 4795 S. Maryland Parkway

In the meantime, Bank of America says it will have ATMs available at these on-site locations for customers to perform the most common needed transactions.

The banking company also released the following statement:

"The majority of our financial centers are still open. Across our footprint, we are balancing the need to stay open to provide access for our clients while prioritizing the health and safety of our employees and clients. As such, there may be times that we temporarily close some locations if we do not have enough staff to sufficiently maintain on-site services – with plans to reopen as quickly as possible. For example, this may happen when more employees find themselves needing to take time off unexpectedly to care for family members during these times.

When this happens, we work to ensure that the ATMs on-site are regularly restocked so that customers can still transact for the most common needs, along with mobile and online banking, and of course, clients can visit other nearly financial centers – they can find the most up-to-date list of operating hours and temporary closures on the Bank of America mobile app."
