New York City officials say the New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square is still on, amid concerns tied to rising COVID-19 case numbers.

Mayor Bill de Blasio says the event being outdoors is key, and they're requiring everyone to show proof of vaccination. He notes there's still over two weeks until New Year's Eve, so plans could change. The mayor says his staff is closely watching the data and the science, especially as tied to the Omicron variant.
