Bank packed with long line of customers

People observe social distancing while lining up at a bank. The majority of the island’s residents are set to receive their COVID-19 stimulus checks issued by the federal government, most likely next month. The question is: Can your bank garnish your stimulus check if you owe them money?

During a time when avoiding crowded places is encouraged due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bank of Guam in Hagatna was packed today with customers waiting to be served.

At around noon, the line was so long that it wrapped around the building and almost reached the bank entrance.

With masks on, patrons waited for their temperature to be taken and to be called in by a bank employee before they could enter the building due to precautionary occupancy limits.

Earlier today, concerned manamko’ called NewsTalk K57 to talk about the difficulty of standing in the long line.

The line for the drive-thru bank teller was also congested.

PNC reached out to the Bank of Guam to ask why so many people were present but was unable to receive a response.
