CDC urges against Thanksgiving travel, gathering
With the coronavirus surging out of control, the nation’s top public health agency pleaded with Americans on Thursday not to travel for Thanksgiving and not to spend the holiday with people from outside their household.
The Center for Disease Control cited more than 1 million new cases in the U.S. over the past week as the reason for the updated guidance, which says the safest way to celebrate is “at home with the people you live with.”
If families do decide to include returning college students, military members, or others for the traditional holiday gathering and meal, the CDC is recommending that the hosts take added precautions: Gatherings should be outdoors if possible, with people keeping 6 feet apart and wearing masks and just one person serving the food.
