On Monday June 15th the Federal Reserve announced that it is resuming examinations for Banks of all sizes. The Fed specifically stated that the rationale for this decision is that “As financial institutions have had time to implement contingency operating plans and adapt operations to the COVID-19 operating environment, the Federal Reserve is resuming examination activities for all firms, including financial institutions with total consolidated assets of less than $100 billion,” the Fed said in a statement.
