On May 27, 2020, the USPTO further extended the time to file certain patent-related documents or fees that would otherwise have been due on or after March 27, 2020.

Under the USPTO Updated Notice, small and micro entities with filings that would have been deemed timely filed if filed by June 1, 2020, will now be deemed timely filed if filed by July 1, 2020. For large entities, relief will be made available upon request after May 31, 2020 on a case-by-case basis for delays caused by COVID-19.
