CCP Cancels Pasinaya 2020 Amid Coronavirus Outbreak
MINDFUL of public health and safety, the Cultural Center of the Philippines regretfully cancels the Pasinaya 2020, which was initially slated on February 7 to 9, 2020.
The cancellation of this year's Pasinaya is in response to the current outbreak of the novel coronavirus. The health officials have advised people to avoid crowds.
For the past 15 years, the CCP Open House Festival has been drawing thousands of spectators who can see-all-they-want for a suggested minimum donation of P50. Last year, more than 16,000 people participated in the country's biggest multi-arts festival.
“As the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus as a public health emergency of international concern, we urge the Filipino people not to panic and remain calm. Let us work together to prevent the virus from spreading. Let us remain vigilant and keep safe,” said CCP artistic director Chris Millado. (PR)
