The CDC issued its strongest warning yet – please stay home this Thanksgiving.
The agency is urging Americans to avoid any Thanksgiving travel, as coronavirus cases, hospitalizations, and deaths all surge to record highs.
For those that do host a Turkey Day gathering, the CDC recommends holding it outside if possible, using facemasks and social distancing, and having just one person serve the food.
“The safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving this year is at home with the people in your household,” CDC official Dr. Erin Sauber-Schatz said.
