At the end, stays / nights in the calendar year 2020 counts towards status for 2021 which expires in March 2022.
That said, if your 30 stays or 60 nights exceeded March 2020, then whatever you stayed in 2019 (which you think is zero) will be your new status from April 2020 until you hit Silver / Gold / Diamond threshold as you start staying in 2020. Hope this helps.
Thanks for the correction, you are right. I'm not sure what I was thinking now that I look at the question and my answer. I must have been thinking that the OP was asking about next January - March, 2019 (and was planning on not staying in 2018) and not two years from now..
