Although most people are dreaming of spending the holidays with friends and family, it’s important to learn guidelines for keeping celebrations safe in a pandemic. Even though you may need to set aside a tradition or two this year, there are still ways to celebrate Thanksgiving 2020 responsibly.
Lots of people travel for the weekend, but the CDC recommends limiting travel as much as possible. If you can, stay in Kerrville, Texas, and celebrate with the members of your household. You could create a feeling of togetherness with friends and relatives in town by delivering a plate of food or a favorite side to their door. Just remember to wear a mask, avoid contact, and wash your hands as often as possible.
CDC safety guidelines for Thanksgiving encourage people to stay home as much as possible. This could mean shopping online in lieu of going out for Black Friday or watching a movie at home rather than heading to the theater. It might also mean celebrating your larger Thanksgiving dinner virtually, which you can do fairly easily with one of many conferencing platforms.
A socially distanced or virtual Thanksgiving dinner may be unusual, but it can still be a wonderful time. Try scheduling some activities, like sharing what you’re thankful for, or playing a virtually compatible game together after dinner, like trivia. Each attendee could share a recipe ahead of time to make it feel like you’re sharing the same meal.
