Mayor Johnson St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations Update –
March 11, 2020
In collaboration with our partners and out of an abundance of caution for public health, safety and welfare, Savannah’s St. Patrick’s Day festival and parade will not go on as planned. The situation across the country is changing quickly. While risk in Savannah remains low, we want to ensure we’re doing everything we can to keep those living in our city safe and healthy.
This is a beautiful time of year in Savannah, and we want to make it clear our city is still open for business. People will still be visiting this weekend, and businesses have upped their game, impressively so, to provide the safest experience possible. Our top priority is preventing – to the best of our ability – any local cases and transmission, and we are paying close attention to guidance from public health officials. The Coastal Health District and our hospitals have assured us they’re ready as always to care for all Savannahians.
