Any ideas on whether there may be lien period extensions due to many court houses being closed?

I'm not aware of any lien filing deadline extensions due to coronavirus shutdowns in West Virginia. That makes sense, too, considering that county clerks' offices have largely remained open during the government shutdown, accepting filings electronically and by mail. As for lien enforcement deadlines - it looks like most legal deadlines were suspended for a time in West Virginia, which would include lien enforcement deadlines since they require legal action. Though, according to this administrative order on the Resumption of Operations, it looks like the deadlines that would have expired between March 23 and May 15 would only be pushed back to May 15, 2020. So, if the lien enforcement deadline came at a time when courts were closed, then the new deadline would've passed on May 15.
