The USPTO is back to normal operating status

On Friday, February 15,  President Trump signed a bill passed by Congress to fund several federal departments until September 30, 2019,  thereby preventing a new shutdown set to begin on Saturday, February 16, 2019.

While the USPTO announced it was back to normal operating status on January 25th, just one day after having announced its funds may exhaust by mid February, the risk of a shutdown was still imminent until last Friday.
