CDC Recommends No Thanksgiving Travel

In an effort to slow the increasingly rapid spread of COVID-19 throughout the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention yesterday told reporters that people should celebrate Thanksgiving in their own households and avoid travel. The country confirmed more than 1 million new cases of the virus in the last seven days. The CDC also clarified the definition of “household” to mean the people you have been living with for the last 14 days. The clarification is especially aimed toward college students returning home for Thanksgiving, reminding them that if “home” isn’t where they have lived during the 14 days, it is not their household.
