Does github uses encryption at rest for all the repositories?

Wanted to know whether the repositories is encrypted at rest or not? 

The privacy page https://help.github.com/en/articles/github-privacy-statement says "Transmission of data on GitHub is encrypted using SSH, HTTPS, and SSL/TLS. While our data is not encrypted at rest,..."

 

The following blog https://github.blog/changelog/2019-05-23-git-data-encryption-at-rest/ says otherwise. Incidentally both pages are updated on the same date.
