Coronavirus: New Year’s Day celebration at Government House in Regina postponed

The annual New Year’s Day celebration at the Government House in Regina is being postponed in an announcement made by Lt.-Gov. Russ Mirasty on Tuesday.

“To help slow the spread of COVID-19 and to support public health guidelines, we’ve decided to postpone our New Year’s Day celebration,” Mirasty said in a press release.

“We will monitor the evolving situation and consider hosting a safe event at a later date.”
