UK CAA Exam Cancelled

Hi All,
I've just had an ATPL (A) exam cancelled tomorrow morning at Luton. I am guessing that all the venues will close and I'm hoping time extensions will be granted. Has anyone at any other venues had theirs cancelled? Just getting a bit twitchy as my time runs out at the end of Jan and I've only two left!

No-one has told us at BGS yet, and we are doing exams this week. But then, why would the CAA think it important to let the venue know?

Thanks Alex,
Are you guys open for exams as a explicit interpretation of the rules that you are allowed to? Appreciate you might not want to be pinned down on that here!
Hmmm this is what I'm worried about: I run out of time cause CATS Luton closes, and I can't re-rebook in time and then go over deadline without a CAA extension. Fingers crossed they do the right thing and issue another general extension.

Extension published

ORS4 No.1464: Covid-19 ? Outbreak: Extension of Validity Periods of Theoretical Knowledge Examinations and Training for the Issue of Licences and Type Ratings

Though having read it twice I am still not sure exactly what it means!
