Coronavirus closings continue

The closings come about as a result of California Gov. Gavin Newsom banning gatherings of more than 250 people.

The fear surrounding the coronavirus has also led to canceled release dates for films such as James Bond: No Time To Die, Fast & Furious 9, A Quiet Place 2, New Mutants and Mulan.

Sports events have also been canceled including NCAA’s March Madness, and seasons are on pause for the NBA, MLB and NHL.

The WonderCon convention has also been postponed, and CinemaCon and the Tribeca Film Festive have been canceled.
