Looking for a place as well.

Only option I can think of is going out of the red zone zip codes.

They claim to be back to normal turnaround.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

For mail-in services, you can select routine service (receive your passport in 10-12 weeks) or expedited service (receive your passport in 4-6 weeks). Expedited service costs an additional $60 per application.

I did my kids in the Post Office 2 weeks ago and mine via mail last week. All checks were cashed a week after being sent, so I am hoping that means they are processed. Will advise once I get them...

They cashed the checks right away even in the beginning of Covid where people waited 3 months after the checks being cashed.
I'm not who you think I am.

Take pics yourself, place on 4x6 using a PC, print for 25-35c per 4x4

My kid's passport is just over 3 weeks now since I applied in Toms River. Can I do a one day passport if I already have one in the system?

It's being processed. Received 9/29 and says normal processing times of 10-12 weeks. I might need it for this Thursday...
