However, the county’s tourism arm is getting calls from event planners who want to know what the status of the infection is in South Florida.
As of 4 p.m, there were no reported cases in South Florida, but a man who is the first reported case in New York had traveled to Miami. Three cases have been reported in the Tampa Bay area.
"We are receiving inquiries about it from meeting planners who are hosting conventions in the area, as to (the virus’) impact on South Florida," a spokeswoman for Discover the Palm Beaches, the county’s tourism arm, said on Monday.
The spokeswoman added that the "health and safety of our local residents is our utmost priority."
Dave Anderson, senior vice president of Spectra Venue Management and general manager of the convention center, added that there had been no cancellations at the convention center due to coronavirus.
"We haven’t lost or postponed any business," Anderson said.
