RELATED: New Haven to host Lunar fest 2020
Lunar Fest will be held Saturday in downtown New Haven. The event celebrates Chinese culture. It’s an event that usually attracts thousands of revelers.
Officials in the Elm City don’t think the coronavirus outbreak — which started in China — will not have any effect on the event.
“I think it’s unlikely that just because we’re having an event to celebrate Chinese New Year that we will have any increased risk or any potential problems.”Mayor Justin Elicker
“The risk for the general public for coronavirus is very low at this time.”Dr. Mehul Dalal, City of New Haven Community Services Administrator
