NEW YEAR: Health professionals are calling for caution ahead of New Year’s Eve in Denver

DENVER (KDVR) – Due to the rapid spread of the omicron variant, health authorities are urging Coloradans to be careful when it comes to attending any New Year’s Eve gatherings.

Healthcare professionals are particularly concerned about those who might attend large gatherings, of which there will be more in Denver.

One of those events is the annual fireworks show on New Year’s Eve in downtown Denver.

But it is outdoors, providing more protection against the spread of COVID-19, according to health experts. This is why they recommend that if you are celebrating New Year’s Eve on Friday, consider doing it outside.

Another suggestion is to avoid eating at indoor restaurants and consider ordering take-away instead, given how restaurants are typically packed on New Year’s Eve.

What health experts recommend most is to hold a small gathering with vaccinated family members.

That way, you can ensure the safety of your loved ones.

“I think people should be very thoughtful about New Year’s parties on the weekends. I think knowing who should be there, what their vaccine status is and if possible being tested before people gather is the safest way people can do it on, ”said Dr. Jean Kutner, Chief Medical Officer at UCHealth, University of Colorado Hospital.

Skiing and snowboarding are considered two safe ways to call in the new year, according to health professionals.

Simply because both are outdoor activities with people already masked.
