State Guidance: No Events of 250 People Or More

New guidance issued over the coronavirus crisis by Governor Gina Raimondo and the state Department of Health to Rhode Islanders on Wednesday was to avoid events with 250 or more people. The state says the guidance is in line with what is being recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, intended to slow the transmission of COVID-19. The Newport City Council cited the new guidance in taking another vote on whether to revoke the license for this weekend's Saint Patrick's Day Parade; the updated vote yesterday, the second in as many days, was unanimous to revoke the license, meaning the parade will not happen.
