    Is it face to face or a telephone assessment? If it's the latter are you still able to take the call? If you do test possitive with Covid, some people have it very mild.. my daughter and son did.

    Hi @bi786 :) I can imagine this would be quite a stressful situation. I'm not totally sure on the answer, but I did find this information on mypipassessment's website:
    Yes, you can change your appointment. You can change it to another day or time. You can also change the Centre that the appointment is at. We're only allowed to change your appointment once and if you miss your appointment without a good reason, DWP may end your PIP claim. Your appointment letter tells you how to contact us to change your appointment or ask any other questions that you might have.
    Would you be able to contact them tomorrow to see whether there's anything they can do?
