2018 tax year refund

I filed my 2018 tax return on paper and on August 15, 2020. I’ve not received my refund.  Has anyone her with similar situations received their refund, found their statu, or breaking news concerning IRS?

Sorry the IRS has limited staff due to Covid-19.  They didn't start opening the mail until June that's been stacking up. Back in March the IRS closed their processing centers and stopped processing mailed tax returns.  An IRS spokesperson said that they have about 11 million pieces of unopened mail.  The IRS says....."We’re experiencing delays in processing paper tax returns due to limited staffing. If you already filed a paper return, we will process it in the order we received it."  So it may take longer if you mailed in June or later.  So you have to keep waiting.
