General Tips for a Healthy Thanksgiving
Stay home. Do not travel.
Limit the number of guests at your Thanksgiving table.
If gathering with those outside your household: have an outdoor gathering, wear your mask and social distance.
If you must be inside: wear your mask, open windows, doors, and turn on fans/HVAC systems in the house to exchange the air.
Guests should avoid direct contact, including handshakes and hugs with others outside their household
Limit contact with commonly touched surfaces or shared items such as serving utensils. Use single-use options or identify one person to serve shareable items like salad dressings, food containers, plates, utensils, and condiments.
Travel & College Students Returning Home for the Holiday
If you must travel over the Thanksgiving holiday, it is recommended you quarantine for 14 days after returning. Wear your mask on public transportation and wash hands frequently.
If you are expecting your child home from college, they should quarantine away from the rest of the family and wear a mask for 14 days after their arrival home. After their quarantine is over, they should limit group gatherings outside the home.
