Amid COVID-19, Concerts and Sporting Events in LA Could All Be Postponed Until 2021

There is currently no set timeline for when the city can resume large-scale events.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, a number of public events have either been canceled or postponed until further notice. According to the Los Angeles Timesthe city of LA might “hold off on allowing big gatherings until 2021.”

In an internal Los Angeles Fire Department e-mail reviewed by the publication, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced during a conference call saying: “Large gatherings such as concerts and sporting events may not be approved in the city for at least one year.” According to Garcetti’s spokesman Alex Comisar, the Mayor does not have a set timeline for when LA can start hosting big events again.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom stated earlier this week that mass gatherings will be off-limits for the time being. In order for the city to protect its residents, Newsom informed The Times that “the state needs to boost testing, protect high-risk residents from infection and expand hospital capacity before the stay-at-home order imposed last month can be modified.”

Experts predict that LA’s stay-at-home orders could extend until the end of May or mid-June. Stay tuned while we wait for any further updates.
