Radisson Rewards has made changes to its elite status and points expiry policies due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Points expiry is extended by 6 months effective March 1, 2020, and elite statuses are through February 2022.

Here’s the update on Radisson’s website:
As COVID-19 affects travel plans around the world, we believe our Radisson Rewards members deserve to use the points that they have acquired and should not be penalized due to circumstances out of their control.
As a result, Radisson Hotels is extending it’s point expiration policy by 6 months, effective March 1, 2020.
We have also extended the elite status of our members through February 2022, for those that would have expired February 2021.
The points expiry extension is useful, but why not through 2022, as is the case with elite statuses? This certainly is an excellent first step, but let’s see if there is something better once the coronavirus has blown out.
