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.
