This month’s surge in COVID-19 cases has been affecting communities from Seattle to Raleigh, N.C., and forcing credit unions to redeploy their adaptive skills honed since the pandemic began in March 2020.

The case surge, which health officials tied to the Omicron variant, has forced a few branch closures at large credit unions, including BECU based in Tukwila, Wash. ($29.6 billion in assets, 1.3 million members) and Mountain America Federal Credit Union based in Salt Lake City,  ($13.8 billion in assets, one million members).
