Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio doubled-down on his calls to downsize the holidays this year during his weekly press briefing; telling New Yorkers to “stay home” and avoid big “gatherings” of family and friends.
“No holiday gatherings of big size, do not travel for the holidays, stay home with close family,” said De Blasio. “We’ve done this multiple times already. There’s a formula for beating this virus.”
“The goal here is to turn this around. We’re still at a low level of positivity. We can drive it down again. People are trying to make a livelihood after those tough months, we want to balance those factors,” he added.
