“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.”
The celebration dates back to 1884 and continued until the 1970s. It was brought back in 1985 and has been going on for the past 35 years.
For those interested, the Government House can be toured virtually on its website.
