New citizens celebrate in condensed, socially distanced naturalization ceremony

On March 18, 2020, USCIS temporarily closed field offices, leaving thousands unable to receive their citizenship. For those who had a ceremony or interview scheduled, it was postponed for a possible future date. In order to continue naturalization ceremonies, the USCIS transitioned to virtual ceremonies, and fully in-person ceremonies are starting again, bringing joy to new citizens.
