Hey everybody, so we are about to send off the AOS packet now, I have a question about biometrics. We’re living in Coachella Valley, I believe our local office is San Bernardino if anyone has experiences from this specific area. (If not, I’d still love to hear your thoughts too). I don’t believe our office is closed so I’m sure she will have to attend the biometrics appointment during COVID (probably very soon). She plans to wear a mask to her appointment. During her appointment, will she be asked to remove the mask for any reason? If this has happened to you, could you tell me the exact points in which they may require her to remove her mask, if any, and how long that lasts? She is very scared of catching COVID and I don’t want her to worry about that on top of immigration stress. Thanks for all input!

Put in your zip code to double check but it seems the nearest ASC is in Riverside, CA: https://egov.uscis.gov/office-locator/#/asc

Most of the time nearest ASC is at a different location than the Field Office.

Thanks! I did it and it turns out that they’re still open. Do you know if she will have to take her mask off during the biometrics appointment?

Yes. You can’t be photographed with a mask on.

Yes - just for the photograph. It takes approximately 30 seconds and the biometrics technician is about 6ft away while this is happening. I definitely wouldn't worry about it too much.
