Coronavirus and convention cancellations question

Post by Laguna Beast »

So it was announced this week that SXSW would be canceled due to concerns over the coronavirus in Texas, genericon has now also canceled its convention for the same reason, and Emerald City ComicCon has postponed their con until the summer. Is AB still going to go on with added sanitation processes/precautions or will the con be postponed/canceled?

Not Anime Boston staff, but I don't believe the con will be cancelled/delayed unless the state or CDC specifically steps in. As long as they follow sanitation guidelines and regulations AB will most likely just continue as scheduled.
