The ShutdownBegins

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has advised officials across the United States to crack down on large gatherings of more than 50 people for at least eight weeks as the governors of California, Illinois, New York City and Ohio close all of the bars in their states.

In a memo shared on their website, the CDC advised state officials that large events and mass gatherings, such as festivals, conferences and parades, could contribute to the spread of COVID-19.

‘Therefore, CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States,’ the CDC said.
