Microsoft announce a number of measures in response to the disruption caused by the coronavirus, including an extension to the end date of existing Deployment Planning Services and Training Vouchers.
Active vouchers created prior to 1 April, 2020 will be extended for an additional 90 days. In addition DPS engagements may now be carried out remotely.

At the end of February 2020 Microsoft announced that a number of certifications would retire at the end of June 2020, the 70-705 exam (Designing and Providing Microsoft Licensing Solutions to Large Organizations) amongst them. However, due to the disruption caused by the coronavirus, this retirement date has been moved to 31 January, 2021.
The original post (https://bit.ly/3a4cxun) explains that while the 70-705 exam is retiring it doesn’t expire as a valid qualification and so it’s worth continuing with plans to take the exam if you’ve been studying for it.
The second post (https://bit.ly/2xg6INe) gives practical guidance on how to schedule an online proctored exam, and what to do if exams are cancelled or you have exam vouchers that will expire in the short term.
