It is unclear whether comedian Trevor Noah, who was set to host the show, will still take part in this year's ceremony.

"Nothing is more important than the health and safety of those in our music community and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly on producing the show," said a statement from the Recording Academy, which runs the Grammys.
