The CDC put out a list of various things we normally do on Thanksgiving, and how risky they are during a pandemic.
Let’s start with a few that AREN’T very high risk . . .
- Low-risk activities include: Having a small dinner with people in your own household. Bringing people food, as long as it’s no-contact. Watching football or parades at home. And shopping online instead of in person.
- Moderate-risk activities include: Having a small, outdoor dinner with a few friends and family members. Doing other things outside in small groups if you social distance. And even attending a small outdoor sporting event if safety precautions are in place.
- High-risk activities include: Larger, indoor gatherings and dinners. Shopping in crowded stores. Attending a large party. And drinking alcohol, because it can mess with your judgment and make you less likely to social distance.
