But it can't hurt to call USCIS.  I suspect their phone will be slammed so call early.

F*@$ this F*@$ing virus. That will mean my interview on the 23rd will have to be rescheduled yet again. 4th time lucky maybe? My husband literally had to fly back to Colorado from Georgia (where he has been working) in preparation for my interview. His company had to make some huge changes to allow him to be able to come home. One of his colleagues literally put themselves at risk to fly over to Georgia and replace him, and now it’s all for nothing. I feel so terrible.

As much as it's in inconvenience, I'd rather be in your shoes right now, this is just delaying till further notice, I got k1 approved, was supposed to fly to the states beginning May, my visa expires 21 May, 😭. Have contacted the US embassy here in Amsterdam, but as of yet ive heard nothing. Still hopeful but stressed to the max, being only weeks away, it's awful, but remind myself there's so many people out there in the same boat.

This was expected. Throughly disappointing but not surprising. The surprise would have been continuing in person services in these circumstances.

Am sorry for the new development but I was expecting this to happen.This is heart broken, I know how you are feeling right now, my interview was scheduled for 23rd next week monday but in all let the will of God be done.

My AOS interview is on April 8. Do you think it’ll be rescheduled too? 😢 I’m confused since it states that “USCIS will send notification to those who are impacted by this closure”. I know our schedule is not within those dates.

This is disappointing but understandable in current 15-day rule circumstances. My Oath ceremony is canceled. Today, I got PDF letter on my USCIS online account (under documents tab) stating below... (I also got call from USCIS officer yesterday about my Oath cancellation as well.)

 

"This is to advise you that, due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to cancel the previously scheduled Oath Ceremony on XXX date for the above applicant. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.We will advise you of any further action taken on this case, including any rescheduled interview appointment information, under separate notice. If you have any questions or comments regarding this notice or the status of your case, please contact the USCIS Contact Center toll free at1-800-375-5283. If you are hearing impaired, please call the USCIS Contact Center TDD at 1-800-767-1833"

This might not be the right place to ask this or we might be getting ahead of ourselves.  But, do you think, once everything is back to "normal", that they will consider going back to not requiring interviews for every single case?  In other words, those that look solid on paper might move through like "old times".
