As pandemic surges, CDC recommends against Thanksgiving travel

Thanksgiving 2020 with COVID-19

Many Americans still intend to host or attend large gatherings despite the coronavirus pandemic

"Postponing travel and staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others this year", the new guidelines state.

The CDC says more than one million COVID-19 cases were reported in the United States over the last seven days.

Walke said 30-40% of the coronavirus' spread comes from people without symptoms, and the US has seen an "exponential increase" in cases, hospitalizations and deaths in recent weeks.

The travel advice is a "strong recommendation", not a requirement, CDC official Henry Walke said on a call with reporters. Check if there are high or increasing in your community or your destination. Are hospitals in your community or your destination overwhelmed with patients who have COVID-19?

Also consider if your way of traveling - by bus, train, plane - will make staying 6 feet apart hard.

For those not traveling but still planning to attend a gathering, health officials recommend that it be with only members of their immediate household - or those who have been living together already for at least two weeks. "And we don't want that to happen". "But this year we're asking them to limit their travel", Dr. Walke said.

Whether or not there is travel involved, the CDC also recommends some safety precautions when celebrating Thanksgiving with a group of people.

Gatherings should be outdoors, if possible, with people keeping 6 feet apart, wearing masks, and having just one person serve the food. (Check the CDC's COVID-18 Data Tracker for the latest number of cases). If indoors, open windows and doors to allow ventilation.

"Always wear a mask in public settings, when using public transportation, and when around people who you don't live with, the guidance continues".
