But the levee was [still] dry…

In an unfortunate but understandable echo of last year, New Years levees have been advised against for Prince Edward Island.

I sent out this note to the unofficial list of levee organizers that I unofficially maintain to compile the unofficial list:

Hello Past New Year’s Levee Organizers,

With the announcement from Hon. Antoinette Perry that there will be no New Year’s Levee held at Government House on January 1, 2022, and advice against holding levees from the Chief Public Health Office this afternoon, I wanted to let you all know that I will not be maintaining a list of levees for New Year’s Day 2022.

Best wishes for 2022 regardless, and I hope to see you all back on the levee circuit in 2023.

Keeper of the Unofficial List of Levees

This is the right call. The holiday season is going to be challenging for PEI I think because there will be an influx of visitors who won’t have time (or probably the inclination) for any kind of self-isolation and child vaccination is still only in early stages. I’d probably cancel all of the in person Christmas Eve church services as well. Hopefully 2023 can be a return to normal and I’d love to be a part of the levee scene when it resumes.
