Dogwood Festival Organizers Keeping Close Eye On Coronavirus

(ORLEANS) – The Orleans Dogwood Festival is keeping a close eye on the new coronavirus.

The Orleans Chamber of Commerce and festival committee members released a joint statement earlier this week over questions about upcoming events:

“Both the Orleans Chamber officials and Dogwood Festival planners are monitoring the developments related to the coronavirus and will continue to do so over the coming days and weeks. Working with our community partners within the town itself, the Orange County Department of Health and other agencies, we will take any necessary precautions at our events. At this time, everything is set to go on as scheduled. If there are changes, we’ll make sure to communicate those to both the media and our patrons.”
