The cancellation comes amidst growing coronavirus concerns and Albany County's first confirmed cases of the virus.

News 10's Samantha DiMascio is reporting the Albany St. Patrick's Day parade has been canceled. She also tweeted the news this morning that Albany Country has it's first two confirmed cases of the virus.

As with all of the other cancellations that have been announced, this another one that is disappointing but one you understand. Between the NBA suspending its season, the NCAA announcing the men's and women's basketball tournaments would be played without fans and now many of the major St. Patrick's Day events being canceled, it feels like the momentum of these events being called is going to keep building.

We can certainly expect more of them over the coming days and weeks as organizers approach public gatherings with caution.
