GROTON – An annual culinary mixer has been rescheduled over concerns related to the coronavirus.

The Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce announced on Tuesday afternoon that the Taste of Nashoba event originally scheduled for March 24 at Lawrence Academy has been postponed to June 16.

The announcement came shortly after Gov. Charlie Baker declared a state of emergency on Tuesday, the same day as the total number of positive cases of COVID-19 reached 92.

“Given the present environment, in line with other educational institutions in the area and primarily for the safety of our community and the surrounding community, we made the joint decision with the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce to postpone the event,” John Bishop, the school’s director of communications, said in a statement.

Melissa Fetterhoff, president and CEO of the chamber, confirmed the joint decision between the chamber and Lawrence Academy on Tuesday that came out of concern for attendees worried about contracting the virus. Fetterhoff said the chamber and the school have heard no concern of possible cases in the Groton area.

“We came to the decision today,” she said on Tuesday. “We had a job fair yesterday and some of the vendors couldn’t come due to company policy.”

This year’s Taste of Nashoba was expected to host over 40 vendors for attendees to sample various foods, including Karyn’s Kitchen in Ayer, Bailey’s Bar & Grille in Townsend and the Great Road Kitchen Oyster Bar & Grill in Littleton.
