CDC Publishes Turkey Day Guidelines That Include Outdoor Dining

Pumpkin Pie in a parka!

We do apologize to those of you living in the northern latitudes of America, but you’ll be freezing your giblets off come Thanksgiving this year.

That’s because the CDC just posted a new set of guidelines for the annual gathering of Americans to give thanks, and they include some pretty drastic precautions meant to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Officials say celebrating virtually or with members of your own household poses the lowest risk of spread during over the holiday. Bringing together family members or friends from different households, including college students returning home, poses varying levels of risk.

    Community levels of COVID-19

  • Potential exposure during travel

  • Location of gathering (indoor or outdoor)

  • Duration of gathering

  • Number of people expected to attend

  • Behaviors of attendees prior to gathering

  • Behaviors of attendees during gathering

There was further detail available as well:

Hosts are encouraged to check COVID-19 infection rates in their area, and in areas where guests may live.

Limiting the number of attendees as much as possible and allowing people from different households to social distance at all times is also encouraged.

Hosting the gathering outdoors, rather than indoors, as much as possible and requiring guests to wear masks when they aren’t eating or drinking is also encouraged. If you are hosting an indoor gathering, the CDC says to increase ventilation as much as possible by opening windows and doors.

Drug manufacturer Pfizer has announced dramatic results in their first vaccine testing, but widespread availability of that jab could be months away still.
