Hi, it would only make sense for them to open now since the lockdown is easing off and especially next week onwards. But no idea since what the embassy does, doesn't make sense. They keep releasing appointments only to cancel them nearer to time

USCIS has no control over embassies.   Local country situation will influence heavily the reopen schedule 


YMMV

This is a question I am obsessing about too. So far I have found hints and this website which seems to suggest June.. They don't mention a source for their info so I tend to take these things at a best guess situation. : https://www.visalawyerblog.com/what-is-happening-with-us-consulates-and-embassies-when-will-they-reopen/ If you hear anymore, please share it as I am sure many would love to know, myself included!

K1s and DCFs have been making appointments for July and August. Also having correspondence received back from the USCIS office in London. The embassy website still says on their information page— We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time.

Looks like that link was updated about 40 minutes ago, but still says "We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time."

 

However, if you take a look at this thread: https://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/738755-july-interview-dates-open-for-london/page/2/#comments it looks like people have been able to book interview slots in July/August, as Wuozopo pointed out.
