“Today, I am really disappointed to announce that we will have a moratorium on large public events through February 28, 2021,” Mayor Jim Kenney announced Tuesday.

“The city’s office of special events will not accept, review, process, or approve applications, issue permits, or enter into agreements for special events or public gatherings of 50 people or more on public property through the end of February.”

The ban includes concerts, carnivals, fairs, and presumably, the city’s famed Mummers Parade on New Year’s Day.
