WordPress 5.5 update is breaking sites

If you are an agency like ours who supports WordPress websites we have found a recent issue with the latest update to 5.5. Updating the site is breaking many themes and plugins due to a jQuery issue. https://www.searchenginejournal.com/wordpress-5-5-issues/377851/

We are working to update all or our client websites as soon as possible. Since we need to manually check each one, this will take some time. If you see the alert in your dashboard to update WordPress please do not click to update.

If you find your site has been broken inadvertently, please submit a support ticket and an agent will assist as soon as possible.
