Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti Says Large Gatherings May Not Be Approved For At Least A Year

According to the Los Angeles Times, an internal Los Angeles Fire Department email went around that discussed placing restrictions on large gatherings in the state for up to a year.

Mayor Eric Garcetti indicated in a conference call that “large gatherings such as concerts and sporting events may not be approved in the city for at least 1 year" according to the email.

Garcetti spokesman Alex Comisar confirmed the mayor’s comments to the Times, saying, “The mayor was generally referencing studies of current and historical data and best practices for safely reopening our economy."

There is no timeline for Los Angeles to resume hosting large scale events. WrestleMania 37 is scheduled to take place on March 28, 2021 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. Construction has continued on SoFi Stadium, though work has been altered due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It is unknown at this time if WrestleMania 37 will be affected. Large gatherings are still prohibited across the country and sports are either suspended or running with no live audience. Vince McMahon is set to be part of Donald Trump's advisory board discussing how to resume sporting events in an effort to restart the economy.
