DUBLIN, Ohio – The City of Dublin has announced they will be canceling their St. Patrick’s Day parade and postponing the opening of the Dublin Link Bridge.

“Public and employee safety is our highest priority,” said Dublin City Manager Dana McDaniel. “We feel it necessary to be a leader in the region to help minimize the spread of the corona virus. We will be cancelling our events this week, including the State of the City event at The Exchange at Bridge Park, the Dublin Link opening and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. We will still produce the State of the City which will be video-taped and published on our website and our social media platforms.

The announcement comes after Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced recommendations to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

According to a news release, the annual parade, which was scheduled for Saturday, is canceled due to the state’s recommendations.

The Dublin Link Bridge, scheduled to open Friday, will be postponed. The city said the bridge will open at a later date to be determined.
