Click for the Centers for Disease Control’s advice. Like don’t travel. Six-foot social distancing. Have guests (risky!) bring their own food, beverages, and utinsils. Eat outdoors.
My family will be ignoring many of many of the CDCs tips. We’ve invited an elderly couple over to the house, and they’re not very healthy. My son and stepson are coming in from out of town. We’re eating indoors.
But we’ll wash our hands more than usual.
I’m wishing you an happy and healthy Thanksgiving with people you love. You can’t be sure when or if you’ll see them again.
