City of Norwalk Suspends all City-Sponsored Events and
Programming through March as a Result of State
Earlier this week, Governor Newsom and the CA Department of Public Health released aggressive guidelines directing the cancellation of large gatherings with crowds over 250 people and cancellation of smaller gatherings in venues that do not allow social distancing of six feet per person.
In an abundance of caution and adhering to policies released by Governor Newsom and the CA Department of Public Health, the City has suspended all City-sponsored public events and programming through March. Further, the Norwalk Senior Center and Social Services Center will remain closed until further notice.
These measures are not intended to cause panic, rather it is an effort to follow state guidelines, safeguard our well-being and help slow the spread of coronavirus.
As information on coronavirus evolves, the City will continue sharing information and expanding preparedness measures to ensure the safety of its residents and employees.
