Per this policy memo found HERE:

  • In order to address situations in which an H-1B FMG is temporarily unable to work full-time due to quarantine, illness, travel restrictions, or other consequences of the pandemic during the declared Public Health Emergency period, USCIS officers will not consider such a failure to work full-time to be a failure to fulfill the terms of the contract under INA 214(l)(2)(B), as a matter of policy.
  • For those FMGs currently employed by an Interested Government Agency or through the Conrad State 30 program, USCIS interprets current regulations to allow those physicians to provide telehealth services during the Public Health Emergency.
  • Provisions relating to the full-time work requirement will apply to any lapse in full-time employment related to COVID-19 that occurred from the beginning of the Public Health Emergency on January 27, 2020, through the end of the Public Health Emergency. Telehealth services provisions will be effective from May 11, 2020 through to the end of the Public Health Emergency.

Hearings in non-detained cases are postponed through May 29, 2020. For the operational status of EOIR operations nationwide, please visit the EOIR website.
