Mechanics’ Institute has decided to postpone our Scholastic Chess Tournament scheduled for March 28, 2020, due to concerns regarding coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). This event was anticipated to draw approximately 500 people. Given the large anticipated attendance and the fact that the City and County of San Francisco declared a state of emergency, Mechanics’ Institute wanted to proceed with an abundance of caution and therefore decided to postpone this event. Our intention is to reschedule this event at a later date, once we have a better understanding of the impact COVID-19 has in the community. We appreciate your patience and cooperation. Please feel free to reach out to Mechanics’ Institute if you have any questions.
