USCIS says those who had been scheduled for asylum interviews, green card interviews, naturalization interviews, and naturalization ceremonies will be sent cancellation notices and the appointments will be automatically rescheduled and new interview notices mailed once the field offices re-open.
USCIS will also automatically re-schedule Application Support Centers (ASCs) appointments (Biometric services) once the ASCs re-open, and will send new appointment notices through the mail.
