Visit coronavirus.gov for a complete list of CDC travel health notices.

We will help you reschedule your appointment without penalty when you are healthy.

I rescheduled my interview because we had to flight to Honolulu and I have symptom as it says, but my request was denied because I didn’t send an evidence for it even the person said I wouldn’t have to go. I didn’t get any emails so I didn’t go. 
My case status now “no one appeared for in-person progressing”. 
 

I’m afraid of going to the hospital right now and I wonder if I had to be diagnosed as nothing?

This is recent, I think yesterday, when did you reschedule your interview? I would contact them again quoting the above.

The official announcement was issued on the 5th or so I think. I called on the 2nd, but I wrote a letter 5th, sent it to local office. 
I called to know what happened to my case because the case status scares me. Then he said they sent an email but I didn’t get and I need an evidence. I still have diarrhea so maybe I need to go to see a doc to get a diagnosis letter... but what if I didn’t get diagnosed!?

I would contact them again today and say you are still unwell and taking into account the recent proclamation do they still need evidence.

I’m going to see a doctor in the morning and will get a letter from doc with any reason to prove my symptoms and I will send it to the local office.
