Make the Best of Thanksgiving 2020
This year, Thanksgiving will be different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but there are plenty of ways to make the best of the holiday. Here are some recommendations on how to have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving in 2020!

Virtual Family Gatherings
Although a traditional Thanksgiving dinner is enormously important, precautions must be taken. Celebrating virtually or with members of your own household poses low risk for spread. If you decide to have visitors come from out of town, the CDC recommends that all family members get tested both before and after the event.
Social Distancing at Gatherings
It is generally recommended that you gather outdoors as indoor gatherings with poor ventilation pose more risk for all attending family members. While each family will have to make their own decisions regarding masks and social distancing requirements, consider having a smaller gathering this year to lessen the chance of contracting the virus. Regardless, whether you decide to have a large or small gathering, make sure to appreciate the extra time with loved ones this year.
Gathering with family during Thanksgiving is a special time for reflection, gratitude, celebration, and peace. While this year has presented many new, unexpected challenges, it is also important to remember the people who are experiencing the holiday alone. Consider donating food to local food pantries and help the less fortunate members of your local community. Whether you are donating food, clothes, or other necessities, getting involved in the local community is one of the most rewarding ways to celebrate the holidays and helps put everything into perspective.
