We’re following the impact of coronavirus on events in and around New York City to bring you the latest on cancellations and things to do during the outbreak.

NEW YORK, March 13, 2020—At Attendee, we’re passionate about live events. We love New York and always strive to share the ultimate live experiences happening in and around NYC. But for now, we’re following updates from public officials to share the latest on event cancellations and things to do during the coronavirus outbreak. 

In an effort to contain the coronavirus, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that gatherings of 500 more people are banned in New York and facilities with an occupancy of 500 people or fewer will be reduced by half. 

Broadway went dark after the governor’s announcement, canceling all performances through April 12 in “support of the health and well-being of the theatre-going public, as well as those who work in the theatre industry,” according to the Broadway League.

The NBA and NHL suspended their regular seasons, the NCAA canceled remaining winter and spring championship games and MLB will delay opening day by at least two weeks. 

In addition to the cancellation of major music festivals announced earlier this week, events in and around New York City are postponed or canceled, including the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade for the first time in its more than 250-year history and the Tribeca Film Festival

While major NYC cultural institutions like The Met have closed temporarily, all New York Public Libraries remain open, but without programming and events through March 31. 

Until large events can take place again, Attendee will share things to do and ways to help during the coronavirus outbreak. In the meantime, be sure to stay informed about the local COVID-19 situation from the NYC Department of Health and practice good personal health habits.
