TUCSON, Ariz. — The University of Arizona Global Chinese New Year Festival Show scheduled for 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1, at Centennial Hall has been canceled due to travel concerns and related challenges arising from the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak. Associated festival activities will be postponed until further notice.
"We regret that we have to take this action, but it's best to be careful at this stage," said Liesl Folks, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at the University of Arizona. "Our thoughts are with the victims of this virus in China and here at home, and we're hopeful that all the people working around the world to contain and control this threat are soon successful."
