The court granted an individual's motion to extend deadline for self-surrender, which was not opposed by the government. As the individual suffered from multiple health problems, including COPD, putting him at “serious risk of complications form COVID-19,” the court chose to grant a limited extension and in the meantime directed him to maintain contact with his probation officer and abide by the conditions of his release.
