As concern grows over the worldwide spread of COVID-19, commonly known as coronavirus, many are taking proactive measures to keep themselves safe from the flu-like virus, which can be fatal in the most extreme cases.

The Broadway League announced on April 8 that all Broadway shows throughout June 7 had officially been cancelled, which could effectively mean the early end of the 2019-2020 season.

Burning Man announced on April 10 that they would not be going forward with their annual event, scheduled for the end of August. “In the interest of the health & wellbeing of our community, we have decided not to build Black Rock City this year,” the organization announced on social media. “Burning Man, however, is alive & well, and we look forward to seeing you in the Multiverse.”
