New Year’s Eve Partying Could Be ‘Catastrophic,’ Officials Say


#Welcome to p.m. #Intel, your bite-sized roundup of #Bay #Area food and restaurant news. #Tips are always welcome, drop them here.

  • “I can’t emphasize enough how catastrophic it would be if people celebrate in ways that we normally do for #New #Year’s #Eve,” #San #Francisco #Department of #Public #Health director #Dr. #Grant #Colfax said at a media event #Tuesday. “If we see a surge like we did from #Thanksgiving, we will see thousands more people in the hospital, hundreds more people dying,” he said. “We simply cannot afford to have people to gather. There is more virus out there than ever before.” #According to #Colfax, “this surge is still our biggest yet and we cannot afford to have a #Christmas or #New #Year’s surge on top of the surge we are already experiencing. #That would be catastrophic. #We simply can’t let it get worse.” #He urged residents not to attend group dinners or underground nightclub events, saying “It’s one #New #Year’s #Eve, I know it’s been a hard year but the vaccine is on the way. #We need to gather by #Zoom, by phone, whatever social media we use to gather with those outside our immediate household. #But please do not celebrate in ways that have been done in the past.”
