Next week’s Premarket event in High Point, scheduled for March 16-17, has been canceled.

“At 3 p.m. this afternoon the Premarket sponsor group held a phone conference and unanimously concluded that we needed to cancel Premarket,” said Doug Bassett, chairman of the Premarket Committee and president of Vaughan-Bassett Furniture.

“Given the developments of the last 24 hours, which include cancelation ACC Tournament Games, NBA games, Major League Baseball, the NHL, and more importantly, guidance from Raleigh about the growing threat of the coronavirus (COVID-19), this was the right thing to do, and really the only decision we could prudently make,” the executive said.
