{March 16, 2020- Detroit} USCIS is working closely with our partners across DHS and the federal government, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to prevent the spread of COVID-19. USCIS takes the health and safety of our workforce and the public seriously and has instructed the agency workforce to follow CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus. USCIS field offices remain open to the public at this time. However, beginning this week, our local USCIS Field Offices have begun seriously reducing the number of interviews taking place. Applicants whose interviews are canceled will receive a system notification. In addition, local USCIS personnel have begun telephoning applicants whose interviews were scheduled for this week.

Individuals who are feeling ill, regardless of whether they have been exposed to COVID-19, should not come to any USCIS office. Individuals who were in a high-risk country within 14 days of a scheduled appointment or ceremony, believe they may have been exposed to COVID-19, or are experiencing flu-like symptoms should follow the instructions on their appointment notice to reschedule. USCIS will help reschedule their appointments and ceremonies without penalty. If a USCIS office has temporarily closed, USCIS will contact individuals to reschedule appointments and ceremonies. More information can be found on the USCIS website. During this time, if for any reason, an applicant does not show up to their interviews, they will be automatically rescheduled.

We will continue to provide updates when/if our operating posture changes.
