Philadelphia has cancelled all large public events through February 28, 2021, Lauren Cox, deputy communications director in Mayor Jim Kenney’s office, told CNN Tuesday morning.
“This is in regards to events that the City permits on public property (like parades and festivals), it does not apply to events on private property—including sports stadiums and concert venues,” she said.
“Decisions on how to resume those types of events will be based on current public health guidance as the situation in Philadelphia progresses," she added.
Additional details will be shared during the mayor's press conference later today at 1 p.m. ET.
