In making the decision Williams stated, "We feel a strong personal and civic responsibility to protect the artists in our company, our constituency and the fans that come out and support us. We felt postponing the event was the right decision to safeguard and not contribute to potentially spreading the COVID-19 virus."
 
Clarke noted, "Gov. Cuomo announced yesterday that CUNY and SUNY, the state's public university systems, were canceling in-person classes through the end of the spring semester. Postponing this event is aligned with the larger mission of taking every preventive measure necessary to protect our students and surrounding communities from being exposed to the COVID-19 virus."
An announcement will be made in the future notifying the public when tickets will be available for purchase. THE MILTON G. BASSIN PERFORMING ARTS CENTER at YORK COLLEGE is located at 94-45 Guy R.
