PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – According to Pittsburgh Public Safety, people largely followed the recommendations and stayed home on New Years Eve.

According to Public Safety, there were no major incidents to be reported as of Thursday evening. It seems that people listened to recommendations and instead partied from home.

Even with new mitigation efforts in the past few weeks, Allegheny County recorded over 800 new coronavirus cases on Thursday. It is these soaring numbers that virtually moved the New Year celebrations, and executives across the city pushed people to celebrate virtually.

Instead of standing on the streets of downtown Pittsburgh to watch the cast go by, the first night celebrations were broadcast on KDKA-TV.

Fireworks were also canceled, and public safety encouraged residents to celebrate responsibly.
