On March 10, 2020, Ohio Governor Mike Dewine held a press conference addressing the coronavirus in Ohio and advised that all large events and contact be limited. On March 11, many universities including BGSU, moved face-to-face learning to temporary online classes. Since then, we have had numerous event cancellations and regulations developing in order to keep everyone safe and minimize those that get sick. The Convention and Visitors Bureau’s goal with this post is to provide our out of town guests as well as our wonderful community members with a one stop spot to check if their event has been cancelled.
