Today I've noticed, that the dates of Algorithm rounds have been changed at this page:
https://tco20.topcoder.com/competition-overview/algorithm/algorithm-rules

For example, previously Round 2A was scheduled for May 23, and Round 4 — for August 1.
Now, it looks like Rounds 2A and 2B will be held in July, 3A and 3B in August, and Round 4 on September 5.
Can someone from TCO organizers confirm this information?

Uff, I'm not crazy. I remembered there is TCO 2A this Saturday but couldn't find any information about it yesterday.

You can find update from Jessie on topcoder forums regarding this shift.

Yes, that is true. Due to COVID-19, we are spreading out the TCO rounds to better align with the updated regional events (which eventually leads to the wildcard round) and the TCO20 Final event — date and location still TBD. We hope to have news soon on our regional events as well as the plan for in-person or virtual finals. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause

    Thanks for the confirmation. Does SRM schedule for May and June stay the same?

      Just one SRM has been moved to keep things aligned, the next SRM is now on June 22nd instead of June 10th as planned :)

        How that works with TCO Stages? I saw on clist that only one SRM left in the stage (it was two before) and thought that SRM got cancelled. But now I think that you should probably shift the end of stage also?

          Well, finishing stages before 2A makes sense for me, to be honest.
