The Skagway Expose scheduled to begin on Thursday has been canceled, organizers announced.
In a message shared on the event’s website, organizers wrote that they were alerted to a positive COVID-19 test result from within one of the event’s indoor venues.
“Currently, the staff of the locations (including some of our Expose crew) are being tested. In light of the time it will take for the results to be delivered, we are left with no safe option except to cancel the weekend’s events,” organizers said in the website update.
In the announcement, organizers said ticket-buyers should see their purchases refunded by Monday and could reach out if they had not been refunded at that time. Additionally, organizers said people who would like to have part or all of their ticket purchase go toward helping organizers recoup upfront costs, such as travel, could indicate their desire to do so in an email. The event’s website lists firstname.lastname@example.org as an email address for the event.
