Message From The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention:
Regarding your medical examination for USCIS/Immigration Form I-693 Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record:
If the examination reveals an acute illness that makes it impossible to determine the alien’s medical status regarding Class A or B conditions, the acute illness should be treated by a physician of the alien’s choice, and the medical examination process completed when the alien has recovered.
This means that if any alien is acutely ill, including persons suspected of having COVID-19, they should seek medical care for their infection and return for their civil surgeon examination when they are well.
At this time, CDC does not require COVID-19 laboratory testing as part of the status adjustment medical examination.
