Coronavirus delays: Met Gala postponed indefinitely

Coronavirus delays: Met Gala postponed indefinitely


The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced Monday that the annual Met Gala, scheduled to take place on May 4, has been postponed indefinitely.

The gala, often referred to as fashion’s biggest night out and the subject of its own documentary, The First Monday in May, is yet another victim of the new coronavirus, as cultural institutions around the world, from La Scala in Milan to Carnegie Hall in New York, have taken drastic measures to try to slow down the progress of this global pandemic. Last Thursday the Met itself announced it was closing “until further notice” after two employees showed symptoms of the virus.

In an internal email sent to Met staffers this afternoon, it was announced that the museum “will remain closed through Saturday, April 4.” Additionally, because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised over the weekend that there should not be any gatherings of 50 people or more for the next eight weeks, the museum has decided, according to a Met spokesperson, that “in deference to this guidance, all programs and events through May 15 will be canceled or postponed,” including the gala.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hi there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    My blog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!

  17. Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
