OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum is planning a one-hour televised program in place of a live ceremony to mark the 25th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing,  due to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus.

Museum director Kari Watkins said Thursday that the program will be recorded and offered to television stations statewide for broadcast on April 19.

The museum closed Saturday as part of efforts to curb the spread of the virus. The program will include the traditional reading of the names of the 168 people killed in the 1995 bombing and 168 seconds of silence.
