A: No. If you don’t go in, they’ll likely violate you for absconding. Best to go in snd see what they want.

A: Tell why you don't want to come in. If they say too bad come in anyway, then you have to go in. You have no real control over the situation. If you don't go in, they will report to the judge that you have absconded and a warrant will be issued for you. Good luck!

A: One of the worst things you can do on probation is not call back or stay in touch with your probation officer. They run the show. If you have legitimate concerns about Covid like pre-existing conditions or some other legitimate concerns you should voice them with your probation officer. The judge will almost always believe the probation officer over the defendant so compliance will get you a lot further than noncompliance
