International Student started this petition to USCIS and

F-1 regulations state that students who have been authorized for post-completion OPT must leave the U.S. before they accrue an aggregate of more than 90 days of unemployment. No 60-day grace period is allowed. Days of unemployment will be counted from the start date indicated on the EAD card.

Due to the COVID-19(Corona Virus), It is impossible for F1- students who are on OPT to find a job at this given period of time. Most of the companies are not hiring at the moment because of travel restrictions and safety precautions.

Therefore, it would be a nice if USCIS and Department of Homeland Security would stop the 90 day unemployment rule for a period of time. This is the time where we have to isolate ourselves instead of going out looking for a job and compromising people safety.
