Good afternoon SDN friends,

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I have a quick question about J-1 waiver processing in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic. Does anyone know how long it will take for USCIS to issue H-1B after an application was submitted (already has the state endorsement)? It has been 6 weeks. I know we are in the middle of a pandemic that changes everything, but I thought they already resumed the visa processing for foreign physicians. My new job starts on July 1st and I can't start until I have a legal working visa. Anyone in the same boat? Should I push off my starting date? My attorney is not giving me any solid answer, so I figure I will reach out to the community to see what others are doing.
