Oath ceremonies are being scheduled for some locations. Any interviews being scheduled yet?

I think they need to be more careful with interviews. You’re in an enclosed office with your interviewer for maybe half an hour, the tablet you use for reading /writing/signing etc is used by all the other applicants that day, as is the chair you sit in, etc. it’s a bit different from a ceremony where (from reports of the ones that have recently been held) they can do it quickly with minimal actual exposure person to person.

that's actually a good point. I think the future of interviews need to follow the same approach that the visa interview happens in the US embassies. 

Meaning there is a glass between the interviewer and the applicant stands up while being interviewed. 

 

Here is a note from USCIS today in CNN:

 

According to the announcement, measures to make the workplace safe for employees will include physical barriers to aid in socially distancing, limiting how many people are permitted in an office at any given time and requiring face coverings.

There are people for whom standing for half an hour or more is going to be problematic. And visa interviews are not private as a general rule, whereas uscis ones are.

I remember in the embassy they had handicapped section too where one can sit during the interview. So that's not big trouble to implement. 

They can let in one person at the time. I have seen in some embassies the interview room which was very small just had two spots and the rest of people were waiting outside of that room until their number showed up on the screen. 

Anyways they had basically 2.5 months to figure these out in their offices.

Yes but the point of the quote I extracted was that they said “Application support centers will resume services later.” with no indication of when that “later” might be.
