6/3/21 – New card is being produced
I didn't get any updates on my USCIS account apart from 'Case Received' and 'New Card Is Being Produced' which was quite frustrating.
I had to take my biometrics twice as they were unable to take my fingerprints properly. In the end I had to get a police report and send it to the Field Office.
I didn't have to go through an interview - which I quite appreciate.
Good luck to those who still wait - be patient, be hopeful, your turn will come soon!
