Met Gala Has Been Postponed Over Coronavirus Concerns And Twitter Isn’t Okay
The 2020 Met Gala is officially postponed over coronavirus concerns.
Per Vogue, “In an internal email sent to Met staffers this afternoon, it was announced that the museum ‘will remain closed through Saturday, April 4.'” They also add, “Additionally, because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised over the weekend that there should not be any gatherings of 50 people or more for the next eight weeks, the museum has decided, according to a Met spokesperson, that ‘in deference to this guidance, all programs and events through May 15 will be canceled or postponed,’ including the gala.”
Vogue also explains that as of last week, two employees of the Met showed coronavirus symptoms.
