Amendments adopted by the Judges will go into effect on a date they will specify, likely December 1, 2019. You will receive another announcement in advance of the effective date.
Please note that amendments to the Federal Rules will go into effect on December 1, 2019. The amendments may be found on the website of the United States Courts, www.uscourts.gov.
