I checked yesterday and the day before without seeing anything on Ancestry. I checked the two places they normally post. Today, I saw an article dated January 14, 2021 on their blog – Ancestry deepens focus on Fami ly History; will discontinue AncestryHealth:

For more than 30 years, Ancestry has provided a platform for people to discover, preserve and share the most important information about themselves and their families. As we enter 2021, more people around the world are embracing Family History to bring their families closer together and build more meaningful connections. 

With the start of the new year, we are deepening our focus on Family History, accelerating our ability to fulfill our mission to empower journeys of personal discovery to enrich the lives of those we serve. 

This includes AncestryDNA, which remains an important part of our Family History success. We are excited to continue to innovate across our experience, delivering product improvements and more record collections to help make finding discoveries easier and faster. 

As we carefully considered how to maximize the impact we hope to have on the world, we have made the strategic, but difficult, decision to discontinue AncestryHealth. 

When we launched AncestryHealth in 2019, our vision was to empower people to take action to address potential health risks identified in their genes and family health history. During the past 15 months, AncestryHealth has been trailblazing in many regards.
