Comic-Con International has decided to postpone April 10-12's WonderCon as the COVID-19 (commonly known as the Coronavirus) pandemic spreads.
"To protect public health and slow the rate of transmission of COVID-19, the California Department of Public Health announced a recommendation that gatherings and events of more than 250 people should either be postponed or cancelled. Comic-Con (organizer of WonderCon) will abide by this recommendation," read a statement from CCI. "Therefore WonderCon Anaheim, scheduled for April 10-12, 2020 in Anaheim, California, will be postponed until a later date. We will begin processing refunds in the coming days."
CCI is also the organizer behind its namesake, Comic-Con International: San Diego, which is scheduled for July 23 through 26. At this time there is no adjustments to that event, which is over fourth months away.
"We continue to work closely with officials in San Diego and at this time no decision has been made regarding the rescheduling of Comic-Con slated to take place this summer; July 23-26, 2020," the statement continued. "We urge everyone to follow the recommendations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and your local health officials."
