Good morning, here is the answer to the question.

If they have been approved for biometrics now and you get their reentry approved, if you do not exercise their reentry within 90 days of it being granted that could cause a denial of entry.

Even with COVID, first off the US Department of Defense found chance of spread from flying is minimal and less than going to a grocery store, so USCIS would require proof that they could not get an flight into or out of the Philippines in order to give an exception to the delay of you returning them to the US.

If there are available flights, then USCIS is rejecting the COVID excuse lately, so you would need to get them back relatively soon after their reentry is approved.

You need to get the biometrics done as soon as you can and then as soon after you need to get them to the US.

You being afraid of your children getting the virus is not going to be a good cause reason for USCIS for you not to get them back to the states soon after you receive your approval

It was nice talking with you.

As we spoke on the phone, please make sure to mail the reentry card to your kids right away so they can have them when they fly to the US.

Best of luck to you, safe travel, and take care!
