LA Blade - The fate of this year’s Palm Springs area April trio of events, including Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the White Party and Dinah Shore Weekend is now in the hands of the Riverside County’s public health department as it declares a public health emergency and announces its first case of Covid-19.

Dr. Cameron Kaiser, the county’s public health officer says says the agency has made no decisions on large scale public events and festivals and are instead focused on understanding the movements of a new CoronaVirus patient in order to prevent its spread.
