From the OFLC website:

The Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) has released a set of frequently asked questions (FAQs) to address stakeholder questions concerning the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's public announcement on March 5, 2020, that it will take necessary anti-fraud and abuse measures to protect the integrity of the H-2B visa program and also make available 35,000 supplemental H-2B temporary nonagricultural worker visas for the second half of fiscal year 2020.

The FAQs are intended to clarify the use of emergency situations related to the supplemental allocation and the procedures that employers can use to return a temporary labor certification issued by OFLC that they no longer need.
