As the clock ticks closer to midnight and a new year, Canada’s chief public health officer’s asking Canadians to take it easy on the alcohol.
”As the new year approaches, many of us will be looking for ways to celebrate.  For some, these festivities will include serving and drinking alcohol, while others may find this season difficult due to distance from friends and family,” says Dr. Theresa Tam in a statement.
”During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen that some Canadians have increased their alcohol use.  It is common to look for ways to cope during periods of uncertainty, but I continue to be concerned about the potential risks of increased alcohol use during COVID-19.
I am reminding Canadians to be aware of the impacts of increased alcohol consumption on their health and to find alternative ways of celebrating and coping with stress that respect public health measures.
This could include physical activity, mindfulness, connecting through phone calls and video chats, or celebrating with mocktails or other non-alcoholic beverages,” Dr. Tam adds.
She points to a list of low-risk drinking guidelines from the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction, that includes information on standard drink sizes and recommended daily and weekly limits.
For special occasions, the guidelines advise no more than 3 drinks for women, 4 for men.
