As precautionary measure surrounding the coronavirus epidemic, many local events, from public meetings to festivals have been canceled or postponed in recent days due to the potential health risks of hosting large groups of people in confined spaces.

According to the Sonoma County Office of Emergency, “Social distancing is a way to slow the spread of a virus. Social distancing includes personal things you can do, and larger public health actions that can be taken.”

The Sonoma County Office of Emergency recommends that members of the public postpone social gatherings and events, avoid large public venues and keep a distance of approximately three feet from the nearest person while at work. Other precautions include avoiding visiting hospitals, longterm care facilities and nursing homes when possible.

In an effort to keep our communities informed, Sonoma West Publishers will be updating this page as we learn about local events that have been canceled or postponed. If an event you planned on attending or that you organized was canceled, and you don’t see it on this list, email
