Of those branches open, most have drive-up or teller partition glass to further safeguard employees and customers.
The remaining 4,000 branches will operate with reduced hours that went into effect on Tuesday.
The company has also stepped up branch cleaning practices to help reduce the spread of germs and viruses.
