Fashion’s biggest night has been postponed due to the coronavirus. The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced the gala will be postponed indefinitely, Vogue.com reports. The announcement comes days after the Met museum closed its physical doors to support the CDC’s order for social distancing and stop the virus from spreading.

“In deference to this guidance, all programs and events through May 15 will be canceled or postponed,” a spokesperson from the MET told Vogue. The staff of the Met were reportedly informed of the closures via e-mail

The Met isn’t the only institution to cancel plans amid preventative orders from the president. The NBA cancelled all games. Disneyland turned off their lights. NYC schools have been closed.
