Coronavirus Precaution Causes Cancellation of Tunica Show
Board members for the South Central Manufactured Housing Institute met via conference call Friday afternoon and agreed to cancel the 2020 Tunica Show.
The SCMHI members said in a statement later that day the discussion was about continuing or not with the show, in light of the many public advisories associated with the spreading coronavirus.
“The board has decided that, out of an abundance of caution and in compliance with the public health recommendations being issued by the states of Mississippi and Alabama as well as our national government in Washington, D.C., this year’s Tunica Show will be canceled,” the statement said.
SCMHI board members expressed deep regrets about the need to cancel the show.
“The health and well-being of our participants and attendees must be our first priority,” the statement said. “We apologize for any inconvenience this decision may have caused, but ask for your understanding during this time as our nation’s leaders work to prevent the spread of this deadly virus.”
