She got him to commit to four things to keep everyone safe this year.

Dr. Tam said Santa has committed to limiting non-essential activities 14 days before he loads up his sleigh with gifts and heading around the world.

He'll wash his hands frequently and wear a mask.

Father Christmas will also practice physical distancing.

"He's an old pro," Dr. Tam said.

At the end of November, she told Canadians to only do essential errands and outings before the holidays and have "the talk" with family members about how celebrations will happen this year.
