    Are there are any cancellations for the NOWRUZ celebrations. NOWRUZ is the Persian New Year coming up on March 19th. Many celebrations were scheduled, given the large number of Iranians in SoCal. And they are fairly large events at prominent establishments every year (i.e.: UCLA, LACMA, just to name a couple). Is all that cancelled too? What about Passover coming right up… Is this the new normal? I can’t believe business has slowed down even at a micro level for even very small businesses like (https://www.market-connections.net), which is a tiny online service. Tell me please it’s all a nightmare.

    Curious if concert venues will start cancelling concerts. Many venues are above the 250 person limit that CA recommends.
