CDC Recommends Virtual Gatherings, Bringing Your Own Food For Thanksgiving

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new guidelines Monday on how to safely celebrate Thanksgiving during the coronavirus pandemic.

Virtual gatherings or gatherings only with members of your household pose the lowest risk of spreading the virus, the CDC said. There is an increased risk when people gather with others from different households or with college students returning from school.

While the CDC didn’t outline a specific limit on the number of people at a gathering, the CDC noted that smaller groups are better and that it is important to wear a mask and stay six feet apart from others. Shaking hands and hugging is discouraged in the guidelines. Shorter gatherings are safer than gatherings that last longer, the CDC said.
