FRESNO, California (KSEE/KGPE) – The Raisin Bargaining Associaton has cancelled its annual meeting in Fresno as a health precaution, due to concerns over the ongoing spread of coronavirus.
The meeting was scheduled for Saturday at Pardini’s Banquet Hall.
In a statement on its website, the RBA says the decision was not an easy one to make.
“Due to the recent local cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the board felt the responsible thing to do would be to cancel the event. We do not want to unintentionally expose one of our elderly members to the virus and/or be in a situation where someone tests positive after the event and a potential quarantine of 400 people would then have to take place.”
