Remember that they became test OPTIONAL for 2021 graduates. If you are confident in your scores, send them in. They will still consider your scores as a part of the application.

I would say that one recognize that since they are test OPTIONAL submitting impressive test scores will still help you in the admissions process, but also recognize that colleges as a whole have been transitioning away from weighing standardized tests as heavily anyways and that the strength of your extracurriculars and essays will carry a more significant weight. I don't think that you should be too worried about the transition to test optional.
