This means Applicants who have filed for extension (renewal) of their employment authorization and had a biometrics appointment scheduled on or after March 18, 2020 (The date USCIS closed their ASC centers) will not need to complete their biometrics  – USCIS will use their previous biometrics from their initial I-765 application and continue to process their application for extension of the I-765.
