City of Norwalk Suspends all City-Sponsored Events and Programming through June as a Result of State Guidelines

The City continues to adopt guidelines recommended by Governor Gavin Newsom and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.  The City’s proactive and aggressive measures are being implemented to help slow the transmission of COVID-19.

As part of ongoing evaluations and in an abundance of caution and adhering to state guidelines, the City has suspended all City-sponsored public events and programming through June, including the Independence Day Pageant. Further, the Norwalk Arts and Sports Complex will remain closed effective March 13 until further notice. 

As information on coronavirus evolves, the City will continue sharing information and expanding preparedness measures to ensure the safety of its residents and employees.
