Is USCIS processing I-526 petitions now?

Is USCIS processing EB-5 petitions now? I know COVID-19 has caused delays but I am wondering if they have resumed the process after reopening.

Most IPO workers are remote and there has been little adverse impact from Covid-19. The slowdowns started well-before Covid-19.

Yes, the USCIS is processing I-526 petitions now. The processing of I-526, just like any other program, was never completely shut down.

Processing of petitions, including I-526 has not stopped due to COVID. USCIS employees have been working remotely during the COVID-19-caused closures.

USCIS never stopped accepting and adjudicating cases, even I-526, although there is a massive increase in processing times, even in light of decreased petitions being filed after the investment requirement went up.

Yes; USCIS is processing I-526 petitions. They are accepting new filings and they are adjudicating all immigrant petitions.
