Beams of light will not form part of September 11 tribute due to coronavirus
Beams of light representing the World Trade Centre towers will not form part of the September 11 memorial this year owing to the pandemic.
Organisers said they were concerned about the risks to workers who set up the display.
The National September 11 Memorial and Museum is planning an alternative display that will include spires and facades of buildings in Manhattan being illuminated in blue, spokesman Michael Frazier said.
Last month, organisers also cited Covid-19 in cancelling one of the most poignant parts of previous memorials: the personal messages spoken by families of victims.
