Citing "concern for public health and safety," the Bernie Sanders campaign has canceled tonight's rally scheduled at the Huntington Convention Center.

"All future Bernie 2020 events will be handled  on a case by case basis," a communications director said in a release. "We are heeding the public warnings from Ohio state officials, who have communicated concern about holding large, indoor events during the coronavirus outbreak."

Gov. Mike DeWine today said he would advise people avoid large gatherings, such as political rallies.

Joe Biden's Cleveland rally this evening has also been canceled, according to a Daily Beast reporter.
