Increase in COVID Cases Prompts Postponements, Cancellations

From travel talks to Library crafts to local live theatre, events in Coronado are being postponed or canceled as COVID-19 cases continue to rise. Due to the current surge of the omicron variant, the City is calling off programs that have high participation numbers or have the chance to draw large gatherings.

Programs that have been postponed or canceled include the just-announced Spreckels Center Newcomer Tour, which has been rescheduled to Feb. 24. Other Spreckels Center events are being canceled altogether for January, including Armchair Travel and all bingo, chorus and current events programs. Some events will go on virtually and the facility itself remains open.

At the Library for the next few weeks, regular programs such as storytime, crafts, and book clubs will be online only and can be viewed at their regular times on the Library’s Facebook page. While a few special events will still be taking place in-person, some Library speakers and concerts have been postponed.

Sign up for Spreckels Center newsletters and visit the Library’s calendar for the latest information.

At least one local theatre, Lamb’s Players Theatre, announced that its 2022 season has been postponed until April.

A statewide mandate requiring masks indoors in all public places regardless of vaccine status remains in effect through Feb. 15. The City requires masks at City facilities and is capping capacity at 50% for public meetings for social distancing purposes. Zoom public comments are available, however, 24-hours advance notice is requested.
