If they're saying implementation of the exemptions will take a few days, it means it will be active in a few days not in the middle of April.

Otherwise they would have just announced that it would be applicable in April originally as well.

Raise webform mentioning that you are not able to travel as planned due to restrictions. They need to know if they want to cancel the CoPR or extend it. Extension can only be done if you inform them. If you have not informed them do it now.
I had raised a web form on 17th.Though no reply, yet I raised another today.How to be sure they have got it?

Maybe reply is just around the corner. You can always mention date of your previous webform while raising a new one. But it is always good to raise only one and wait for its response. They might be running with half of their staff and IRCC call centre is closed till 2nd April when i checked last time.

Sometimes they don't reply but they are aware of it. I have an experience when they asked me to submit a document in 7 days but I needed an extension of 30 days for it. I provided a valid reason and they listened but they did not respond that they listened. It's like they care about you but don't wanna show.

Few days sounds better than few weeks. Few days is somewhere between 10th April to 15th April. Let's wait for announcement.

I scanned through around 20 pages but couldn't find what I was looking for.

Did anyone get a response for their WebForms for COPr cases where the COPR is expiring and the people can't travel because of 'you know what'. Are they giving extensions?? Hope we don't have to start the process afresh, would be very very difficult.

If so, is there a possibility to pin that message to the first page of this thread? would help others (ADMINs can help here)

They haven't started giving extensions yet because of 'you know what' situation. They have mentioned the process to initiate it but CoPR extension process is not started yet. They are currently waiting for 'you know what' situation to calm down and things go back to normal as they were before.

Thanks why'You know what'
 
One of my friends submitted web-form and also sent an e-mail to the immigration team of the Visa office (London in his case). He received a reply today and following is the extract from the email.

'Please be advised that you will not be penalized if you are unable to travel within the validity of your documents. Your application has been updated with notification of your current inability to travel.'
