Gilda's Laughfest has announced the remaining three days of the festival have been canceled due to concerns about the coronavirus. Select events will be rescheduled.

The organization released a statement saying:

Gilda’s LaughFest was designed to raise awareness of Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids and its free emotional health support of children, adults, families and friends on any kind of cancer journey or those grieving a death due to any cause. As an organization supporting those on a cancer journey, it is only appropriate that we cancel the remainder of the festival beginning with events scheduled for Friday, March 13 – Sunday, March 15. We recognize the need to protect our community from the potential spread of COVID -19, and will follow the recommendations set by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, which encourages the cancellation or postponement of large gatherings."
