A Note From Your Publisher: Info on Local Event Cancellations

Coronavirus means the situation is changing quickly

March 14, 2020

This is an uncertain time, and things seem to be changing by the day -- if not the hour -- with coronavirus and the reaction to it as health officials and the government try to slow its spread.

Treasure Valley events are being canceled and I have marked them as such on the events calendar as I hear about them. But I always recommend verifying event details with the venue before you attend, and it is especially important to do so right now as the Treasure Valley events may be canceled with little to no notice. 

Macaroni Kid Meridian will update our calendar as we hear of cancellations. For instance, Home Depot and Lowe's have canceled their kids' workshops nationwide for the time being. The Meridian and Eagle libraries have cancelled their events for a few weeks as well. 

If you hear of any event cancellations not reflected on the Macaroni Kid Meridian events calendar, please reach out to me at name karic@macaronikid.com or on our Facebook page and I will update the calendar.

Please watch the CDC, the Idaho Department of Health, and the Ada Health Department for the latest news.

And, of course, please take care of yourselves and your family. (But leave some toilet paper for the rest of us.)
