Yuma Airshow Cancelled Due To COVID-19 Concerns

Organizers for the Yuma Airshow, which was set for this weekend, announced the show has been cancelled “due to the COVID-19 concerns and safety of the public.”

There have been no reported positive cases in Yuma County as of midday Thursday. Nine cases have been reported in Arizona. On Wednesday, Governor Doug Ducey declared a state of emergency because of the virus.

Officials announced on Twitter that the commanding officer of Marine Corps Air Station Yuma had made the decision to cancel both days to the general public and those who purchased tickets.

Full refunds will be issued from the ticketing website starting Monday to those who purchased upgraded seating and parking.

The Yuma Airshow Team said “we are saddened that we have to cancel our favorite event of the year, but want to reiterate that  safety is our number one priority.”
