COVID-19 affect on SA 2021 recruiting

I know some firms are considering altering their SA 2021 processes as a result of coronavirus. Anyone know what banks are doing that, and what is changing? ex. delaying recruiting, only phone/Skype interviews, decreasing the number of interns, etc.

I think the larger effects of COVID-19 will be on incoming 2020 SAs and they are the main focus now, at the end of the day the biggest effect on 2021 SAs will just be a return to normalcy where summits and superdays are delayed to the fall or even end of the year which is no different than what was happening 3 years ago.
