A recent spike in positive COVID-19 cases in Seward has pushed the Seward Chamber of Commerce to move away from previously planned mitigation efforts and cancel all Fourth of July events.

“We just feel like it's best if we don't give people a reason to come to Seward on the Fourth of July weekend. It's a very popular place for people to come to but at this point we're just going to focus on keeping our community safe and healthy,” said Kat Sorensen, communications director for the Seward Chamber of Commerce.

Fireworks, vendors and the closure of select streets in Seward's downtown are among the newly canceled events, a Monday press release from the city clerk stated.
