Stay safe this Chinese New Year says Oxford Health

Today (February 1) is Chinese New Year – also known as Lunar New Year 2022 or Spring Festival.

Oxford Health wants to wish everyone a happy and safe Year of the Tiger.

The Tiger is the third of the Chinese Zodiacs. People born in the year of the Tiger are said to be like their zodiac animal which is “courageous and active” and “love a good challenge and adventure in life.”

Celebrations of Chinese New Year traditionally last for 16 days, starting from Chinese New Year’s Eve to the Lantern Festival which this year is from January 31 to February 15.

Whilst many lockdown restrictions have been lifted, we should remember that COVID-19 is still present, and you should still be cautious.
