Just as credit unions were opening or preparing to open branch lobbies after stay-at-home orders expired on May 19 in Minnesota, several credit unions were forced to shut down their branch lobbies again because of riots that erupted in Minneapolis following the death of a black man while in police custody on Monday.

The University Avenue Branch continues to be closed and we plan to reopen on Monday.
