Are Amex travel credit expiry dates being extended due to Covid-19 travel restrictions?

I have an AMEX travel credit expiring next month. Any ideas on how I could use this effectively given the current situation? I generally use it for a local hotel for a stay-cation, should i just book the same as far away as possible to hope things are normalised by then. Has anyone heard any news if travel credit may be extended given lack of options to use it right now?

Got an email today RE this - looks like all unused credit it being extended:
