OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Public health concerns about the spread of the coronavirus have resulted in the temporary closing of the Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum, and Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum is temporarily banning events that would bring 250 or more people to city-owned facilities. Museum officials and Bynum announced the closings on Saturday.

The museum said the 25th Anniversary Remembrance Ceremony scheduled for April 19th will also be altered, but no specific plans were announced. The ban on large events in Tulsa is in place until April 15th.

The vast majority of people studied recover from the virus within weeks.
