CEFs that actively responded to the covid crisis

Does anyone have stories/data on CEFs that actively adjusted their allocations in the covid crisis to generate alpha?  It's a little disappointing I find that most CEFs simply have static allocations, and are diversified within that allocation, so the managers are actually irrelevant and they might as well be leveraged indexes.  I specifically focus on taxable bond funds, but any stories would be interesting. 

Here is one -- JHS (which is an investment grade bond CEF, and a very large part of my current portfolio) sold about half their agencies and all their foreign bonds (about 30% of port) and put it all in US corporates, mostly BBB sometime in April.   They understood the impact of the fed, generated significant alpha, and, while only one instance to me indicates a responsible, level-headed active management.   Any other examples?
