This year we need to change the way we celebrate the New Year! This New Year’s Eve we ask people celebrate at home with only the people with whom you live. Those who live alone can join one other family as long as they are the only person joining.

We have listed some low-risk New Years activities that you could incorporate as part of your celebrations:

1. Get Outdoors

Being active outdoors is a great way to have fun and promote well-being during this time:

  • ● Going for a walk or hike
  • ● Play outdoor games
  • ● Have a bonfire

2. Celebrate at Home
Make new traditions without even leaving the house:

  • ● Watch your favourite movies
  • ● Watch free online music events
  • ● Bake some holiday treats

3. Connect Virtually
The safest way to socialize this season is by connecting virtually with friends and family:

  • ● Call up a friend or video call the relatives
  • ● Play games
  • ● Read a holiday story together
  • ● Having a baking contest

We recognize this has been a difficult and challenging time for many. The greatest gift we can give each other is to protect our family and loved ones by staying at home, following all the safety protocols and using other ways to celebrate.

“Our Citizens and Community remain our first priority and we will work to mitigate risks for best possible outcomes moving forward through the COVID-19 pandemic.”
