Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Adjudication

[Last updated March 15, 2022 8:48 PM.]

ACUS maintained this page as a resource for agencies and the public from March 2020 through March 2022. It is no longer being actively updated.

Federal agencies are developing policies to manage their adjudication caseloads while promoting public health and safety. ACUS is providing the resources below for agencies and compiling relevant orders, policies, news releases, and other statements as agencies make them available on their websites and in the Federal Register.

Please contact Jeremy Graboyes ( for more information or to provide additions, updates, or corrections.
