AS HEALTH officials warn communities to prepare for a potential coronavirus outbreak, events around the Clarence Valley region are being cancelled or postponed.

The Federal Government has recommended all non-essential mass gatherings should be cancelled to contain the spread. The crowd ban has knocked down community events, festivals and business conferences across the Clarence.

Clarence Valley Council is working with the Plunge Art & Culture Festival (March 27-May 1) event hosts to ensure community safety is a priority.   "Some events have been cancelled or postponed and at this stage smaller workshops will be going ahead, this may change and the situation is being monitored daily," a council spokeswoman said.
