The DeWitt County Museum has postponed a planned weekend fundraising breakfast because of the coronavirus outbreak.
Executive Director Joey Woolridge tells Regional Radio News the Health Department reached out to them asking them to postpone their event because of the crowd size and also the older demographic the event would likely draw, as the coronavirus leaves older people most susceptible.
Wooldridge indicates for those that purchased a ticket and would like their money back, they are offering a full refund of those tickets.
The museum is scheduled to open April 1 but Woolridge wonders if their first big weekend of the year, which will be free on Saturday, April 4 because it is National Museum Day, will be postponed because of this. Like so many other things happening right now, the situation is fluid.
Woolridge indicates they will work to reschedule the breakfast with details to come at a later date.
