ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) — The annual Labor Day parade downtown St. Louis has been cancelled.
According to St. Louis Labor Council, they have cancelled the parade due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the growing concerns of the Delta variant.
The parade was set to be held on Sept. 6 in downtown St. Louis. The 2020 parade was also cancelled due to the pandemic.
“This situation could have been avoided but much of our community continues to refuse to get vaccinated. Vaccinations work. Over 95% of those in our hospitals are unvaccinated and over 99% of the deaths due to COVID are those who are unvaccinated,” said St. Louis Labor Council President Pat White.
