Thanksgiving is a time for families to gather and give thanks for the many people, families, and events that have been a part of their life. But because of  COVID-19, many families are worried about not being able to see their families. Here are some tips to have a healthy Thanksgiving.

If you are going to have family over from high risk states, then make sure social distance is kept and of course make sure everyone is wearing a mask. This is especially important for people possibly coming from out of state.

Some family members might want to stay the night, but, if this is the case, be sure that they are fully prepared with their own toiletries, so you will not have to share. Clearly let them know what you would expect from them for your safety and others in your house.

Thanksgiving is a very family-driven holiday, especially when it is time to eat. So when it’s time for Thanksgiving dinner, make sure your seating is arranged six feet apart to allow distance between guests.
