As part of the 4 week lockdown, which is scheduled to tentatively end on December 2, the US Embassy has confirmed that it will be reducing some routine in person consular appointments during November.
Emergency services for American Citizens, including emergency passports, are still available, although the Embassy asks you to "be aware that emergency appointment availability is extremely limited". You can also continue to apply for a US passport renewal by mail. One service which will be unavailable is applying to register a birth outside of the US (CRBA), or applying for a child's first passport.
The Embassy is also advising overseas Americans that travel advisories may be subject to change.
