Thanksgiving traditionally is a time when we gather with our loved ones. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we will celebrate the holiday this year.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that we limit family gatherings to only the people who live in our households. They offer tips for holiday gatherings during the pandemic here. A Spanish version of this information is also available here.
With this in mind, please continue to follow best health practices and wash your hands, wear a face covering and remain six feet apart when you leave your home.
Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
