Does I485 based EAD/AP require biometrics must done first before the combo card is produced?

Given the pandemic situation that ASC are being closed or at least not fully open, which cause the delay of bio-metrics, will the EAD/AP combo card be produced/approved without the bio-metrics? I heard that there are some combo cards marked ‘FP not available’ on the card, so would like to confirm.


It depends on USCIS discretion.
