What will Times Square do this year for their annually NYE ball?

Every year since about 1907 Times Square in NYC has had a ball on New Years Eve where lots of people gather to see in the new year.  This year round will be very different though with Covid-19 still ongoing.  I'm not sure about the laws on social distancing in New York but wondering if it'll be going ahead. 

I remember watching 2012 into 2013 from an online chatroom where PSY was preforming with Gangnam Style.

    My guess is that they will drop a ball and show it on television, but they won't allow crowds to gather to see it in person.

    The ball drop will occur, but Times Square will be closed off to all but the television people and the performers.  In short, the public will not be allowed to get anywhere nearby.
