With Thanksgiving just right around the corner, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have put together a list of things we normally do on Thanksgiving and how risky those activities can be during the pandemic.

Low-risk activities:

  • Having a small dinner with people in your household.
  • Bringing people food, with no-contact.
  • Watching football or parades from home.
  • Shopping online instead of in person.

Moderate-risk activities:

  • Having a small, outdoor dinner with few friends and family members.
  • Being outside in small groups if you decide to social distance.
  • Attending a small outdoor sporting even if there are safety precautions enforced.

High-risk activities:

  • Large indoor gatherings.
  • Shopping in crowded areas.
  • Going to big party.
  • Drinking alcohol, since it can mess with your judgement and might make you less likely to social distance.
