The CDC Recommends Not Traveling For Thanksgiving


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended that we not travel for Thanksgiving. During a press conference on Thursday, Dr. Henry Walke said, "The tragedy that could happen is that one of your family members is coming to this family gathering, and they could end up severely ill, hospitalized or dying. And we don’t want that to happen." He continued, “These times are tough, it’s been a long outbreak, almost 11 months, and we understand people are tired. We understand that people want to see their family and relatives and do it as they’ve always done it. But this year, we’re asking them to limit their travel.” If you are traveling, Walke said to do so "as safely as possible by following the same recommendations for everyday living." That includes physical distancing, wearing masks, and washing your hands.
