Americans urged not to travel during Thanksgiving

CDC updates coronavirus Thanksgiving guidance, urges against travel JUST IN: CDC Advises Against Travel For Thanksgiving to Stop Coronavirus Spread
Bennie Garza | 21 November, 2020, 06:17

According to Reuters, the government agency says it's making a "strong recommendation" - not a requirement - not to travel because cases have surged in many states across the country.

We've already seen local officials advise against large gatherings this year, citing the fact that Thanksgiving has the potential to be a super-spreader event. According to data from Johns Hopkins University, the US saw its highest daily death toll in more than six months, with at least 1,707 fatalities being reported on Tuesday. In addition, more people are now hospitalized with the virus than at any point during the pandemic, which has now led to the deaths of more than 250,000 Americans.

It's a life or death matter.

People gather in multiple generations and someone in that get-together could have diabetes or kidney disease, or simply be older and more vulnerable, Walke said. See CDC's guidance: https://t.co/zLzjYg5X6P.

As #COVID19 cases increase rapidly across the United States, the safest way to celebrate the #Thanksgiving holiday is at home with people who live with you.

If families do decide to include returning college students, military service members, or others in a gathering, the CDC is recommending that hosting families take added precautions.

Safer gatherings can be held outside as much as possible, the CDC recommends. "Wear a mask and safely store your mask while eating and drinking".

Travel is risky in no small part because of travel hubs, which bring people together from different places, and the lines that form that make it hard to keep a distance from others, the CDC said. "Travel may increase your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19".

Dr. Henry Walke, the CDC's Director of the Division of Preparedness and Emerging Infections, said the agency is recommending against travel during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Are hospitals in your community or the community you will be visiting overwhelmed with patients who have COVID-19?
