JACKSON, Mich. — The 2021 Jackson Blues Festival originally slated for June 10 to 12 has been postponed until at least September.

Festival organizer Cindy Hayden Fuller said the state's recommendations on social gatherings make it impossible to keep up with the requirements for large outdoor gatherings.

"I want to do the responsible thing and make sure that the Blues Festival does not turn into a super spreader," Fuller said.

COVID rates have been climbing in Jackson County. As of March 28, Jackson County has seen a 19.3 percent positive test rate and a seven-day average of 14.7 percent.

Those numbers have been on an upward trajectory since mid-March.
