The coronavirus pandemic has started to affect events in the summer, with the Daytime Emmy Awards announcing Thursday that they were canceling their June ceremony.

“There are just too many unknowns right now, not the least of which is whether we would actually be permitted to stage an event in June” involving more than 1,000 participants, National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman Terry O’Reilly wrote in a letter to members.

The Daytime Emmy Awards had been scheduled for June 12-14 in Pasadena.
