Bay Area USCIS offices CLOSED due to coronavirus

Almost all the counties in the San Francisco Bay Area in California released a legal order yesterday requiring all residents to shelter at home until March 7. As a result, all businesses (except those that are deemed necessary like medical, grocery stores, banks, gas stations, take-out restaurants) have had to close. This includes ALL USCIS offices in the area. Here is the link on USCIS's website indicating the closures:
I was supposed to have my biometrics appointment for my AOS work permit next week so now that it's gonna be closed for 3 weeks, I'm screwed. My DACA work permit expires 5/31/20 so I really can't wait until the offices open up again in a few weeks. I'm planning on driving out to the ASC offices in Modesto or Sacramento and attempting a walk-in out there.
If anyone else lives in the Bay Area and also has biometrics scheduled during this closure, I suggest you either reschedule you appointment with USCIS to after March 7 or do what I'm doing and drive out a few hours and try a walk-in at another office.
