If you’re clients were traveling to Puerto Rico for the New Year’s celebration, it’s now being scaled down. Puerto Rico has canceled the live in-person event for its planned New Year’s Eve celebration, which will be the first Spanish, globally, broadcast New Year’s countdown, due to the rising Covid cases. In an effort to ensure the safety of both residents and visitors, the governor of Puerto Rico, Pedro Pierluisi, just announced scaling back the planned New Year’s Eve celebration at Distrito T-Mobile—the event will continue to be broadcast live globally on ABC via Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2022 but will move forward without a live in-person audience.

This decision is being made in order to guarantee everyone’s health and safety as they continue adapting to the ever changing COVID landscape. Puerto Rico has made health and safety a priority from the onset of the pandemic by implementing strict guidelines. The Island currently has one of the highest vaccination rates in the U.S. with 89.1 percent of the eligible population having at least one dose.

Puerto Ricans and audiences around the world will still be able to enjoy the historic broadcast and first-ever globally telecast Spanish language countdown from the safety of their homes by tuning into ABC beginning at 8pm ET.
