Coachella is held in the city of Indio, which is inside of Riverside County and officials have declared a public health emergency after confirming its first case.

The entire music festival is up the air. Riverside County public health officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser said no decisions have been made about the fate of Coachella and other public events. He said officials are still trying to assess the movements of the patient and whether others were exposed to the virus.

We are waiting to hear back if the government will allow the festival to take place.

Coachella is set for April 10 through the 19.
