Retirement Transition Postponed until June 12

Due to the unprecedented and continued market volatility that began in recent weeks regarding COVID-19 and other market developments, the Retirement Plan Governance Committee has decided to delay the transition to Fidelity until June 12, 2020.

You can read the announcement the Committee sent here. This means that there will be no blackout period between March 20 and April 13, nor will there be a day out of market for the April 1 transition.
