Thanksgiving is traditionally One of the most popular holidays in the United States, but this year, like many other events, it should not be held in the same way as in the past, health experts recently warned.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released its recommendations on how to celebrate the occasion without putting yourself at risk of contracting the new coronavirus virus.
According to the directions, although people tend to travel long distances to see their relatives and friends at the end of November, unless absolutely necessary, it is safest to avoid travel. If you need to, read these directions about the best ways to do this.
In order from more to less dangerous, we then share the CDC lists.
- Shopping at busy stores just before, during or after Thanksgiving
- Participate or be a spectator at a busy event
- Attend crowded parades
- Using alcohol or drugs, which can cloud judgment and increase risky behaviors
- Attend large indoor meetings with people who don’t live in your home
MODERATE RISK ACTIVITIES FOR THANKSGIVING
- Having a small outdoor dinner with family and friends living in your community (not specified what small means)
- Visit plots or orchards where people use hand sanitization before touching or picking fruits or products, and where the use of water covers and social estating is imposed
- Attend small outdoor sporting events with safety precautions
LOWER RISK ACTIVITIES FOR THANKSGIVING
- Having a small dinner only with people living in your home
- Prepare traditional recipes for family members and neighbors, especially those at increased risk of severe COVID-19 disease, and deliver them in a way that doesn’t involve contact with others
- Host a virtual dinner
- Buy online instead of in person on Friday after Thanksgiving or next Monday
- Watch sporting events, parades and movies from home
