RHEL 7 will continue to receive security updates until it goes EOL in 2024. As far as is currently known, CentOS will continue to rebuild those updates and release them for CentOS 7 too.

In the final years of the distro life, Red Hat have always tended to concentrate on only those updates that are marked as Critical or Important though there are others that also get fixed too.
