One more bit of news:
– Prometric updated their overall statement. https://www.prometric.com/corona-virus-update Despite acknowledging that federal social distancing guidelines now extend through 4/30, Prometric says: “As previously announced in March, Prometric made the difficult decision to temporarily close all of its test center locations in the US and Canada through April 15th with an anticipated resumption of testing effective April 16th. At this time, there is no deviation from this planned resumption of operations.” They promise some changes to the operation when it reopens, but the only specifics are that candidates will be allowed to wear masks and gloves.
