Tips for a Safe Thanksgiving 11.23.2020 1020 6 JS

With the upcoming holiday and several counties throughout the state reverting to stricter guidelines due to increased COVID case counts, the following tips are essential for ensuring a safe Thanksgiving holiday.

  • Get tested. Before going to a family gathering, ensure to test for COVID-19 prior to arriving, if feeling sick, or believe contact with an infected person occurred.
  • Limit gathering sizes.
  • If possible, host gatherings outdoors. Increased airflow when gathering outdoors will allow for reduced risk of getting or spreading the virus.
  • Go easy on the alcohol. Lowered inhibition from drinking excessive alcohol can result in forgetting to follow safety precautions.

The use of facial coverings at these gatherings can reduce the impact and likelihood of spreading the virus, and buffet style serving of holiday meals is discouraged.
