New recommendations against large-scale gatherings by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic have resorts and event venues suspending operations across the United States.
On Sunday the CDC issued a recommendation that, for the next eight weeks, organizers of events cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more within the United States. Monday morning, the governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut banned these events outright, while many major resorts in areas across the country began to close temporarily.
