Biometric Appt may now be Rescheduled by Phone

On May 11, 2021, USCIS announced that Biometric Services Appointment may now be re-scheduled by calling the USCIS Contact Center (800-375-5283). Applicants must establish good cause for rescheduling and must call before the date and time of their original appointment to reschedule.

It seems applicants may still reschedule by mailing back the biometrics notice with the box checked for rescheduling. Submitting rescheduling in writing does not normally require a specific reason.
