Per her twitter:
In light of these recent diversity reports and taking a long hard look at my list and where I fit in the publishing industry, I've decided I will be indefinitely closed to general submissions except for projects by BIPOC creators. #QueryStatus

I've seen a few comments where people have nudged her and gotten a response. Is there a certain etiquette to this? And how long have you waited before doing this?

"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to consider XXX. I'm sorry to say that while there was a lot of creativity here, I didn't connect with the story in the way that I needed to in order to be the right agent to champion this work. As you know, these decisions are largely subjective and another agent or editor may have an opinion completely different from mine. Thank you again for thinking of me and best of luck with your future queries."

Nudged 5/13/20 mostly because the Query Manager entry was still open and I figured why not before CNR? Pleasant form rejection like twenty minutes later. :)
