Thanksgiving celebrations aren't that far away, and ahead of the celebrations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has revealed how you should properly celebrate - safely.

This is how the CDC wants you to celebrate Thanksgiving in your home 19 |

One of the biggest concerns for public health experts is the traveling people will be doing to see family for Thanksgiving this year. Many families have members that live in different states, and many people are going to want to be spending time with loved ones in these states, but that is going to be considered risky depending on the coronavirus situation in your/their state.

Ahead of the 2020 Thanksgiving celebrations, the CDC has updated their website with three categories; Lower risk activities, Moderate risk, and Higher risk activities. In the entirety of this article, you will find each of those categories listed and the respective activities that the CDC considers risky. These guidelines echo recent statements from the nation's leading infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci. More on that story can be found here.

Lower risk activities

  • Having a small dinner with only people who live in your household
  • Preparing traditional family recipes for family and neighbors, especially those at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19, and delivering them in a way that doesn't involve contact with others
  • Having a virtual dinner and sharing recipes with friends and family
  • Shopping online rather than in person on the day after Thanksgiving or the next Monday
  • Watching sports events, parades, and movies from home

Moderate risk activities

  • Having a small outdoor dinner with family and friends who live in your community
  • Lower your risk by following CDC's recommendations on hosting gatherings or cook-outs.
  • Visiting pumpkin patches or orchards where people use hand sanitizer before touching pumpkins or picking apples, wearing masks is encouraged or enforced, and people are able to maintain social distancing
  • Attending a small outdoor sports events with safety precautions in place

Higher risk activities

Avoid these higher risk activities to help prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19:

  • Going shopping in crowded stores just before, on, or after Thanksgiving
  • Participating or being a spectator at a crowded race
  • Attending crowded parades
  • Using alcohol or drugs, which can cloud judgement and increase risky behaviors
  • Attending large indoor gatherings with people from outside of your household
