BUTTE — Two more big summertime events in Butte will be canceled to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

The Butte Health Department plans to cancel this year’s Fourth of July parade, and the 3rd of July fireworks display will be postponed this summer due to the coronavirus.

Health officials say any summer events with a gathering of more 250 people will be forbidden in Butte until at least Labor Day in September.
