The USCIS has indicate that there will be no penalty for rescheduling appointments due to illness because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
If you become ill for any reason, even if you were not exposed to COVID-19, USCIS advises that you do not attend your appointment at a USCIS office. You should follow the instructions on your USCIS appointment notice to reschedule an appointment with the USCIS.
You should reschedule your USCIS appointment if you:
- Were in any country designated as a "level 3" by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) within 14 days of your appointment;
- Believe that you may have been exposed to COVID-19 (even if you were not in a level 3 country);
- Are experiencing flu-like symptoms (such as a runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat or fever).
USCIS wants to ensure the safety of foreign nationals and USCIS employees. There is no penalty if you reschedule your appointment at this time.
