ABC is proceeding with Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest for now

Right now ABC still plans on moving forward with Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest even with skyrocketing infection rates for the new COVID Omicron variant.

NY Mayor Bill de Blasio today announced that the city will be proceeding with the New Year’s Eve Ball Drop but with fewer revelers and tighter rules, including masks and social distancing according to Deadline.

Last week Fox canceled their New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022 noting that, even with strict health protocols, “the recent velocity of the spread of Omicron cases has made it impossible to produce a live special in Times Square that meets our standards.”
