Today’s roundup of coronavirus postponements in New Jersey:
• Adam Sandler has postponed his March shows, including his March 14 appearance at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. He posted on Facebook: “We’ve been looking forward to this upcoming tour for a long time but after a lot of thought we have decided to postpone the March dates. Health officials say that large gatherings should be avoided to help stop or prevent the spread of the coronavirus, so we will reschedule the dates once things are back to normal. Stay safe, wash your hands, don’t make out with (Rob) Schneider, and we will get through this like champs. Look forward to having a great night with you soon.” No new dates for the postponed shows have been announced yet.
