However, Bank of Hawaii has decided to close Kalihi Branch effective Wednesday, March 25. Kalihi Branch employees will be transferred to surrounding branch locations.
Bank of Hawaii will continue to assess branches and inform the public should additional branches close due a COVID-19-related incident or other unforeseen circumstances, such as insufficient staffing levels.

For the safety of employees and customers, BOH has increased the frequency of cleanings as well as enhanced its social distancing practices, such as queuing customers six feet apart in transaction lines and/or outside of branches.
