Extension on the MCSA/MCSE exams due to Corona Virus Outbreak

Hello Support,

i was scheduled to take a trainer led MOC-20743 in the next 2 month to prepare for the exam to achieve the MCSA Windows Server 2016, before it gets retired. Due to the Corona outbreak many companies put out a travel ban or forbid visiting other companies. Therefore i am unable to take the learning course.

Are there any planes to move the cutoff Dates back due to the pandemic over Covid-19? I doubt that i am the only one affected.

Many thanks for an answer,

Andreas [removed]
