Thanksgiving During COVID-19: 3 Risky Situations That Could Arise & How to Avoid Them

Nov. 20, 2020

No, Thanksgiving isn't technically canceled this year. But it will look different. Sadly, COVID-19 doesn't take holidays off.

While it's been fairly easy to adjust our plans for previous holidays during this pandemic, Thanksgiving is a little tricky. The whole point of the holiday is to 1.) gather and 2.) share food. Two big COVID no-no's. (Okay, for some of us it's also about watching a days-worth of football while fighting off the food coma brought on by the best food we've had all year...but you get the point.)

So, with Turkey Day planning in full swing, you may be nervous — looking for advice on how to avoid some of the risky situations that could pop up.

While not gathering with people outside your household will always be the safest option, the tips we share in the video above can help make sure you're celebrating Thanksgiving as safely as possible.
