Only those who have been vaccinated will celebrate the New Year outside the home

New Year will be celebrated as usual this year in New York, despite the Pandemic.

The city will welcome thousands of people to Times Square for the famous tradition of throwing New Year's globes, as long as they show evidence of vaccination against Covid-19.

The news was given by the mayor of New York Bill de Blasio through an announcement.

"We want to welcome those hundreds of thousands of people - but they all need to be vaccinated," said the mayor. "All you have to do is have proof of vaccination and a valid photo ID and you're inside."

Times Square Alliance leader Tom Harris said people with disabilities who will attend and who cannot be vaccinated must show negative PCR test evidence within 72 hours.

He added that children under the age of five should be accompanied by a vaccinated adult and all individuals who are unable to be vaccinated should wear a mask.
