June 24 update: Bloomberg is reporting that dozens of U.S. diplomats are preparing to return to Beijing next month. Reportedly, some are concerned that the Chinese government could have access to their DNA samples from COVID-19 testing. And some are concerned that dependent family members may be separated if they test positive.

Still, emergency appointments are being scheduled. Also, some consular posts have begun scheduling future routine appointments for select visa classes, as shown in the USTravelDocs website.
