The Coronavirus outbreak is having an effect on a number of events around Lincolnshire.
Organisers have blamed COVID-19 for a number of postponements and cancellations of upcoming events in Lincolnshire.
The following were some of the key events that are cancelled or postponed in the city:
- Streets chartered accountants were the first ones to take action as they decided that they will be replacing their post budget presentation with a video.
- The City of Lincoln council were soon to follow as they postponed their climate crisis meeting that was scheduled to take place on the 11th and the 13th of March.
- The Business Lincolnshire growth hub have postponed all of it’s events this month. They haven’t announced rescheduling but were quick to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
- The Greater Lincolnshire local enterprise partnership had scheduled it’s first ever skills conference on the 19th of March with approximately 400 people set to attend but have rescheduled for October 13th.
- The residents have also been informed that the Christmas market meeting is postponed and have been asked to wait for further notice.
- Lincoln city FC have suspended all games as per orders from the EFL.
- However, the Lincolnshire show is still going ahead as scheduled in June.
As things stand, at least five events that were meant to take place in the city this month have been postponed or cancelled and the organisers had the COVID-19 to blame. So far there are three confirmed cases of coronavirus in Lincolnshire and one pupil has been put under self quarantine after returning from a personal trip abroad.
