Prem Chandra Chaudhury BMC Commissioner said “December 31st celebration is not allowed as of now. The COVID-19 guidelines for December doesn’t allow any type of large gathering, social or political, apart from marriages, No Zero Night Celebrations, This Year and other rituals with a limited gathering,”
As, no social gatherings are allowed this year, new year celebrations of any kind will not be there in Hotels, Clubs and Pubs in Bhubaneswar. Amid all this good news is that permission is given to celebrate Christmas but strictly following all social distancing norms.
This may be a bit of disappointing news for those who are looking forward to New Year celebrations, but there is no bigger celebration than ‘life’. There are many people out there in the hospitals fighting with covid and many more medical staff assisting them to recover at the cost of their life. If we are healthy, and happy every moment that you spend with loved ones will be celebration. So, stay safe, stay at home and avoid gatherings.
