Dec. 29 COVID-19 Update

Make the New Year Holiday a Safe One

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, this New Year’s staying home is the safest choice. Celebrate with the people who live with you:

Watch a livestreamed fireworks display, concert, or other New Year’s programming from home.

Cook or order a special meal to share with your household.

Plan an outdoor activity like hiking or sledding with the people you live with.
