Christmas celebrations should have "absolute minimum" number of guests: Horgan

British Columbians should keep Christmas and other holiday dinners this year to as few guests as possible, Premier John Horgan said Wednesday.

“Keep those celebrations to an absolute minimum,” he said.

The province currently has an order banning gatherings with people outside one’s household, but it’s unclear if that order will be extended through December 25. It’s currently set to expire on December 7.

Horgan said he couldn’t give British Columbians a set day when they’ll know what orders will be in place for Christmas, citing the ever-changing situation.

“We have a lot of COVID-19 in communities … we need to all focus on that and stick to the basic activities that we are essentially required to do and no more than that,” he said.
