There is currently an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus called coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The virus was first detected in China and has now been detected across the globe, including in the United States. COVID-19 usually causes mild disease such as fever and cough, but can cause severe symptoms such as pneumonia and difficulty breathing. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person between people who are in close contact with one another (within 6ft) or through respiratory droplets produced when someone coughs or sneezes.
Some practical things that you can do to stay healthy are:
We regret to inform you that the 6th Annual Golden Future 50+ Expo Long Beach Edition scheduled for this Saturday, March 14th at the Golden Sails Hotel will be postponed to a later date.
We were informed late last night from the Long Beach Covid-19 Response Team that there are 3 confirmed cases of the Coronavirus in Long Beach. These are the first documented cases for the city.
In solidarity with the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services, we could not in good conscience host the event this Saturday.
We will work with the venue to secure a date later this year for the Long Beach Edition.
Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you soon!
In an abundance of caution, we have moved the Pasadena/San Gabriel Valley Edition of the Golden Future 50+ Expo to Saturday, October 3rd 2020.
