Received an e-mail this morning that my test (4 days away) was cancelled. I had to reschedule for the 16th, which was the only sitting available. This is absolutely ridiculous.

I stopped studying for the last week or so then just got curious as to why I haven't received an e-mail. Spoke with the SOA this morning and it seems that my exam is still a go. This is a mess.

I'm studying like it's going to happen based on Trump's briefings and local governor (Indiana) briefings. Looks like we will be starting to get out of lockdown May 1.
