How will the Coronavirus Affect Thanksgiving in the United States in 2020?

By: Zainab Rizvi, Staff Reporter, The Pawprint,

Countless events have been affected by the Coronavirus in 2020 and unfortunately, thanksgiving will be too. 

In the end, it is always one’s own decision as to what their plans will be for the holiday and whether they decide to follow proper SOPs or not. The CDC.gov (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) has already published an article about SOP’s and the precautions that must be taken. Another article strongly recommends that for this year, the best option is to celebrate with loved ones at home, already living with you. 

Texas officials have already said to cancel all types of gatherings. 

“Cancel gatherings, large and small, unless you’re with your household,” Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said Tuesday. “We’re in a war against this virus. This is not the time to lament that we didn’t get a gathering this time around.” 

United airlines reported the most flight bookings since March and provided 1,400 flights for the week of thanksgiving. 

Many were prepared to celebrate a normal Thanksgiving this year in the US after the last few months in isolation but this won’t be looking any different.

Experts plea the citizens of the US to have a small thanksgiving and suggest that it is not too late to cancel your thanksgiving plans this year.
