To keep our loved ones and our communities safe this holiday season, traditions will have to be modified.
As the Christmas holiday approaches and COVID-19 cases remain on the rise, Premier Doug Ford asked Ontarians to celebrate the holiday only with people within their household at a press briefing on Nov. 25, 2020.
“If you live alone you can join one other household. Please don’t have big holiday parties, no large gatherings,” he added.
Ford suggested virtual gatherings as a safer alternative.
A provincial news release states that anyone “living away from home, including those studying at colleges and universities, should consider doing a self-quarantine or reducing close contact with others, 10 to 14 days before returning home for the holidays.”
