Arnold Classic 2020 (WBNS-10TV)

The Arnold Sports Festival put out a list of which events are still scheduled and which ones are canceled this weekend.

Gov. Mike DeWine and Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther have threatened to take legal action if Arnold Sports Festival allows spectators to attend its events.

Gov. Mike DeWine, Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther and health officials announced on Tuesday that athletes would be able to compete, but people would not be allowed into the Greater Columbus Convention Center due to concerns over the coronavirus.

Gov. DeWine says after new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about large public gatherings, they have decided to limit the event.

The only exception for spectators would be for the bodybuilding and strongman finals on Saturday night.

Additionally, the trade show and expo would be canceled altogether.

On Wednesday, organizers said they hope to allow spectators unless they are told they absolutely cannot.
