It’s an unprecedented time in America.
The global outbreak of coronavirus has forced the postponement or cancellation of just about every large public gathering out there, including most sporting events and concerts.
However, Denver’s Pepsi Center decided the show must go on Thursday, and still put on a scheduled performance by Post Malone to a jam-packed crowd. Warriors coach Steve Kerr took the opportunity to urge people to take responsibility in helping to mitigate the virus’ spread.
It’s going to take all of us to commit to social distancing in order to turn the tide and get the virus under control. Please explain this concept to everyone you know. https://t.co/YiCN0jeMgP— Steve Kerr (@SteveKerr) March 13, 2020
Social distancing is one aspect of the Center for Disease Control’s guidelines to help stem the transmission of coronavirus, recommending that people avoid close contact with others.
Chase Center, the home of Kerr’s Warriors, postponed all events through Mar. 21, including several high-profile concerts featuring Tame Impala and Post Malone.

Kerr certainly isn’t taking this pandemic lightly, as he shouldn’t.
