After an announcement from Governor Gavin Newsom WonderCon has been delayed.
We have covered WonderCon for many years and are sad at this turn of events but understand that the public’s safety comes first and we’ll be there once a new date is set.
Check out the official statement from WonderCon below.
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 canceled. Comic-Con (organizer of WonderCon) will abide by this recommendation. 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.
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. We urge everyone to follow the recommendations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and your local health officials.
The news comes after Governor Gavin Newsom announced that gatherings of more than 250 people should be postponed or canceled across the state until at least the end of March.
