The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advised against traveling during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Dr. Henry Walke, incident manager for the CDC, made the comments during a virtual briefing with media outlets on Thursday.
“With Thanksgiving approaching our hearts and minds turn to visiting family and friends,” Dr. Walke said. “Amid this critical phase, the CDC is recommending against travel during the Thanksgiving period.”
Dr. Walke said that those who decide to travel should do so “as safely as possible,” wearing a mask and washing hands when heading to public places.
