A virtual encounter will be made to permit individuals to participate in the commencement to 2021 from any place they are, coordinators said.

“Like never before in these separated and dread occupied occasions, the world urgently needs to meet up emblematically and for all intents and purposes to commend the individuals and things we love and to look forward with a feeling of recharging and fresh starts,” said Tim Tompkins, leader of the Times Square Alliance.

Coordinators said participation in Times Square will be “pre-decided and incredibly restricted due to COVID-19 limitations,” so they’re chipping away at ways for individuals to take an interest basically any place they are.

“Individuals everywhere on the globe are prepared to join New Yorkers in inviting in the new year with the notable Ball Drop. I recognize the Times Square Alliance, Jamestown, and Countdown Entertainment on finding a protected, inventive and imaginative route for us all to keep on praising this exceptionally old convention. Another year implies a new beginning, and we’re eager to celebrate,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
