The holding action comes after the show said one week ago that the show would go on. (New York Auto Show Claims It Will Happen)

As AutoInformed said then,The show’s fate of course will be determined by public health departments at the city, state and federal levels. At the moment there is no known vaccine for preventive or ameliorative use against COVID-19.

This still applies, despite the denials and obfuscations of the central government, and the president’s apparent refusal to get tested or stop touching people in crowds. Trump has dismissed the severity of the outbreak, made demonstrably false claims about the nature of the virus and – true to form –  politicized the crisis – by  saying over and over again that his opponents and the media are politicizing it.

“We have already been in communication with many of our exhibitors and partners and are confident that the new dates for the 2020 Show will make for another successful event,” claimed Mark Schienberg, president of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association, which owns the show.
