H1b transfer vs H1b extension - COVID-19

I am currently FTE with company A holding H1b visa and it will expire in September 2020 and haven’t filed extension yet.

On another hand recently I got offer letter from company B they said they will start H1b transfer after background check is completed. As of now my background check is completed but with COVID-19 now USCIS stopped all premium processing for I-129!

Is this applicable for H1b transfers also ?

What exactly I need to do ? Other than waiting :frowning:

Please advice !

H1B transfer Premium processing is currently suspended.

My suggestion is to wait for transfer approval before joining the new employer.
