Banks, credit unions encourage online, drive-thru banking

  • Updated

Some banks and credit unions have taken steps to safeguard your money and your health while the spread of the coronavirus continues.

Greenwood Municipal Federal Credit Union, Neighbors United Federal Credit Union and Abbeville Community Federal Credit Union have both closed their lobbies and are directing customers to use their drive-thru service as well as online banking.

Countybank, South State Bank, First Citizens Bank and Wells Fargo are keeping their lobbies open but are encouraging customers to use their drive-thru, online banking system, mobile app or phone to conduct business.

Many banks have changed their cleaning procedures to reduce the possible spread of the virus. South State Bank is providing hand sanitizer to staff and customers who visit the branch lobby.

First Citizens Bank and Wells Fargo are reminding customers to be vigilant against scams and fraudulent schemes by never providing personal information on unsolicited phone calls.



Since access isn’t the problem anymore, state health officials are instead focused on convincing people to get vaccinated against COVID-19, State Epidemiologist Dr. Linda Bell said.

Greenwood County School District 50’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously to remove certain pandemic-related policies at its special called meeting Thursday.

Getting your COVID-19 vaccine should be convenient — from drive-thru vaccinations and vaccines at the grocery store to getting a shot while getting a check-up, vaccine providers are looking to make vaccinations as easy as possible.

Soon children age 12 and older might be able to get the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, and state health officials said they've been getting ready for this development.

Students, parents and teachers can get vaccinated this week at Greenwood or Emerald high schools, according to district officials.
