    Consider your scaled-back family Thanksgiving a test run. White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci says Americans won’t be able to celebrate the end of the COVID-19 pandemic until after Christmas and New Years — even with vaccines posed for mass-distribution. “For my own family, I’m saying we had a really great Thanksgiving and Christmas last year. We’re looking forward to a really great Thanksgiving and Christmas in 2021,” Fauci told USA Today. “Let’s now make the best of the situation and show our love and affection for people by keeping them safe.” Drug company Pfizer last week submitted a vaccine application to the Food and Drug Administration after seeing 95 percent effectiveness in clinical trials. But the FDA scheduled a review meeting for Dec. 10, delaying distribution of millions of doses amid a nationwide surge in infections. Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said, “If the surge takes a turn of continuing to go up and you have the sustained greater than 100,000 infections a day and 1,300 deaths per...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — People are getting creative this Thanksgiving from to-go orders to dining outside. Many were in the holiday spirit Thursday, enjoying the breezy fall weather and the decorations in Old Sacramento before sitting down for a meal. The Majestic family decided to bring their Thanksgiving celebration to their front yard complete with a turkey boat for the kids to play in, a turkey cut out, and turkey chalk art. The family made sure their Thanksgiving was both fun and safe. “Being safe, being outside being comfortable in an uncomfortable situation,” Paul Majestic said. Their celebration would not be complete without football, so the family set up the big screen in their trunk of a friend’s SUV. “Everybody is just finding a way to be creative and work around it,” Majestic said. “We sacrificed time with family and friends in comfortable spaces.” READ ALSO: Thanksgiving Deliveries: Bonney Employees Give Back With Care Packages For Homeless They also made time to Facetime their family from out of state, wishing them a happy Thanksgiving.

    Reuters November 26, 2020 0 Comments Democratic President-elect Joe Biden and sitting Republican President Donald Trump, like hundreds of millions of Americans, planned quiet Thanksgiving celebrations at home on Thursday, as the coronavirus pandemic rages across the United States. Former Democratic Vice President Biden was spending the holiday in the small seaside town of Rehoboth, Delaware, where he and his wife Jill have a vacation home. The Bidens were to host daughter Ashley Biden and her husband Dr. Howard Krein for the holiday meal. This year will be a rare break from the Bidens’ decades-long tradition of gathering with extended family for Thanksgiving, typically on the island of Nantucket off Massachusetts. In a pre-Thanksgiving speech on Wednesday, Biden said they had traveled for Thanksgiving for 40 years, except the year after his son Beau died in 2015. He alluded to that bereavement in the presidential-style address to a nation which has lost more than 260,000 lives to coronavirus. “I remember that first Thanksgiving, the empty chair, the silence,” Biden said. “It takes your breath away. It’s really hard to...
    A pair of Texas grandparents can't spend Thanksgiving with their family in person this year — so they sent life-size cardboard cutouts to their four grandchildren. Missy and Barry Buchanan, known as Ama and Poppi, haven't been able to hug their grandkids since March, when the pandemic hit the US with full force — but the creative couple found a funny way to be with them for the holiday on this week. They mailed a pair of six-foot-tall cardboard cutouts of themselves to Quintin, 12, Oliver, 10, and Clara, 6, in Texas, as well as another to three-year-old Noah in California.  So creative! Missy and Barry Buchanan sent life-size cardboard cutouts of themselves to grandkids in Texas and California for Thanksgiving The Buchanan have only seen their Texas grandkids outside on the porch since the pandemic began, and they haven't seen Noah in California since last Christmas. Instead, they have been keeping in touch with Zoom and other technology. But for Thanksgiving, they wanted their grandkids to feel their presence, so they ordered and mailed off the custom cardboard...
    Vermont Gov. Phil Scott said during a press conference on Tuesday that schools in the state will include new questions during daily health checks about whether students and their parents attended gatherings outside of their households following the Thanksgiving holiday. Scott noted that any students who attend events with more than just their immediate household will be required to either take online classes for a two-week quarantine period or quarantine for a week and then have a negative COVID-19 test. “We understand how difficult this is, but since we know these types of gatherings have been the cause of so many outbreaks, we’ve got to do all we can to slow this down,” Scott said. The governor also encouraged businesses to take the same approach with their employees. “From my standpoint, this is fair warning to those of you who are planning to have gatherings from outside your household for Thanksgiving,” Scott added. “If you don’t want your kids to have to transition to remote learning and quarantine for a seven-day period, maybe you ought to make...

    DENVER (CBS4) – Something we’re not going to be thankful for this Thanksgiving: a rise in COVID-19 cases potentially due to gatherings. “So while I’ve looked this past week and maybe see hints that the number of cases are slowing a bit,” Dr. Eric France, Colorado Department of Health and Environment Chief Medical Officer said. Dr. France is worried that successes that may have been achieved in slowing the spread of the virus in the past months are about to be undone with Thanksgiving celebrations. “We’re definitely in the throes of a pandemic that thrives and grows with human contact,” he said. CDPHE estimates currently 1 in 49 Coloradans is infected and contagious. France is warning people who have not quarantined about meeting family and friends. “You might have the virus, you might be starting to shed it, definitely such low amounts it’s not picked up by the test, [and] three days later you’re shedding it in large amounts and you’re infecting your family members while feeling well,” he explained. We don’t have to look farther than our neighbor up...
    This is a press release from the Georgia Department of Public Health. The COVID-19 pandemic is causing families to make difficult decisions about their 2020 Thanksgiving celebrations. The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) urges all Georgians to plan ahead and take steps to reduce risk of exposure to COVID-19 and the flu as they celebrate. COVID-19 spreads easily whether gatherings are large or small, putting families and friends at risk – especially individuals who are elderly or have underlying medical conditions. The safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving this year is to stay home and celebrate with people in your own household. Travel increases the risk of getting and spreading COVID-19. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others. “The surge of COVID-19 infections in Georgia and across the country mean we must rethink our idea of a traditional Thanksgiving this year,” said Kathleen E. Toomey, M.D., M.P.H., DPH commissioner. “Each family must assess the risk of exposure to COVID-19, especially among elderly or medically fragile individuals, as...
    South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem suggested “common sense” on Friday for celebrating Thanksgiving, appearing to offer an alternative to her fellow residents as some mayors and governors across the country have imposed maximum capacities for gatherings and other restrictions as the number of novel coronavirus infections increase. “In South Dakota, we won’t stop or discourage you from thanking God and spending time together this Thanksgiving,” Noem wrote in the first of seven different posts. “Some states across the country are imposing restrictions on Thanksgiving celebrations. Some in the media are even looking ahead and planning to cancel Christmas. I’ll continue to encourage each and every one of you to exercise personal responsibility and make smart choices.” Noem, 48, completing her second year as governor, outlined basic guidance such as washing hands frequently, taking extra precautions with elderly and others with underlying health conditions, and making sure those suffering symptoms stay isolated and visit via video. “Let’s make sure to use common sense when we’re planning our celebrations,” she wrote. Noem has been ridiculed by media outlets for her response to...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is discouraging people from spending Thanksgiving with friends and family members outside of their immediate household, warning that a “safe zone” in your home is actually “dangerous” this year. “It’s your family. It’s your home. It’s your table. These are all environments where you feel safe, and that is the beauty of Thanksgiving,” Cuomo said in an audio recording shared in a tweet Thursday afternoon. “I’m at home with my family. I’m in my safe zone. Your safe zone is not your safe zone. Your safe zone is dangerous this year. Please. Love is sometimes doing what’s hard. This year, if you love someone, it is smarter and better to stay away,” he added: Love is sometimes doing what’s hard.

    CHICAGO — Getting a negative coronavirus test does not mean you can have a Thanksgiving gathering, the state’s top doctor warned Thursday. For weeks, the state’s and city’s leading health officials have begged people to cancel their holiday plans and not gather with friends and family from outside their household. They’re worried such gatherings could lead to COVID-19 spreading even further and, ultimately, killing people’s loved ones. Similarly, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released guidance Thursday advising Americans not to travel and to have online celebrations for Thanksgiving. Dr. Ngozi Ezike, head of the Illinois Department of Public Health, doubled down on that during a Thursday news conference, telling people the safest way to gather is virtually — regardless of if you’ve had a COVID-19 test recently. “A negative test does not give you a free pass to celebrate Thanksgiving in person,” Ezike said. “The safest way to celebrate with your loved ones and your cherished, elderly relative is to do it virtually. “… I don’t want anyone to look back and say, ‘If only we didn’t have...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – We’re a week away from Thanksgiving — a major holiday where families typically gather together and share food and conversations. But because of the continual surge in coronavirus cases, the Allegheny County Health Department is telling people to cancel their Thanksgiving plans with family. “I’m also advising residents to cancel their traditional Thanksgiving celebrations that may involve members of other households, and instead celebrate virtually. Avoid traveling and limit social gatherings like parties, dinners, barbecues and other events,” Health Department Director Dr. Debra Bogen said Wednesday while announcing a stay-at-home advisory. The CDC is now also urging Americans not to travel during the Thanksgiving holiday. It’s a tough decision for many. People tell KDKA they look forward to the holiday that’s known for bringing people together. But because of the virus, they say sacrifices have to be made so others are safe. “We haven’t seen our in-laws since last Christmas. So it’s been a long time, we miss them very much,” said Alyson Cunningham. Cunningham lives in Mt. Washington and says she won’t be seeing her extended...
    John Moore/Getty Images The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is advising Americans not to travel for Thanksgiving this year in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus. The CDC’s Dr. Henry Walke said in a briefing on Thursday that there is “no more important time than now for each and every American to redouble our efforts to watch our distance, wash our hands and, most importantly, wear a mask,” before advising that the “CDC is recommending against travel during the Thanksgiving period.” “For Americans who decide to travel, CDC recommends doing so as safely as possible by following the same recommendations for everyday living,” he added. On its Thanksgiving advisory page, the CDC warned that “Travel may increase your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19,” and that, “Postponing travel and staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others this year.” Though recommending Thanksgiving celebrations to be virtual this year, the CDC recommended that those who do celebrate with others in person bring their “own food, drinks, plates, cups, and utensils,” and wear masks....
    Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar spoke Wednesday about the coronavirus pandemic, talking up the very encouraging news about vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna while warning Americans they can’t let their guard down in the time being. The CDC recently sent out guidelines about how people should safely celebrate Thanksgiving, which Azar made a point of noting today: “The safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving this year is at home with the people you live with and through virtual celebrations. Gathering indoors with people who aren’t members of your household is a higher risk activity for spreading the virus.” HHS Sec.

    Apparently, it's quite hard to say no to Thanksgiving dinner. For almost all of 2020, traditional holiday celebrations have been altered (or even canceled) due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. While many hoped to be able to return to somewhat normal Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations, recent spikes in COVID-19 cases have officials warning against large gatherings. Based on a recent study, however, it seems that about 40% of Americans may still plan on attending these sorts of events.

    (CNN)Canadian Thanksgiving was just last month, and the country has seen consequences as Covid-19 cases reach record highs. Now, Canadian leaders say Christmas celebrations are in jeopardy.Thanksgiving in Canada fell on October 12 this year, and as family and friends gathered, it fueled a widespread surge in coronavirus cases, hospitalizations and deaths. Now, public health officials warned the health care system cannot handle a repeat at Christmas. Will Thanksgiving be a superspreading event? Look to Canada for answers"Reducing your contacts, reducing your gatherings are going to be most important. And what we do in the coming days and weeks will determine what we get to do at Christmas," pleaded Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a news conference Friday. Casual socializing has been a key source of the spread in almost every part of Canada, said Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada's chief public health officer."An important driver of this increased disease activity continues to be informal social gatherings and activities both inside and outside our homes," Tam said. "In these more relaxed settings such as family gatherings, birthday parties, holiday celebrations and...
    (CNN)Thanksgiving typically means two things: lots of food and lots of family time. But this year, with Covid-19 numbers soaring, the city of Chicago would prefer if its residents nixed the latter.As cases of Covid-19 continue to rise in the city, Chicago has issued a stay-at-home advisory -- encouraging residents to stay home and only leave for school, work or other essential needs, according to a news release issued Thursday. That includes seeking medical care, grocery shopping and picking up food.The order, which begins Monday, extends through Thanksgiving festivities. Residents are "strongly advised" to not have guests in their homes outside of essential workers -- even family and close friends."Chicago has reached a critical point in the second surge of COVID-19, demanding that we undertake this multi-faceted and comprehensive effort to stop the virus in its tracks," said Mayor Lori Lightfoot in the release. "The gains we have made this past year have been the result of our willingness to work together. Even in this difficult moment, we will continue to unite as we always have for our city in...
    MSNBC host Chris Hayes exchanged Thanksgiving pumpkin pie for a wet blanket Tuesday, as he slammed the Trump administration for not encouraging Americans to hold "virtual" holiday celebrations this year. As coronavirus cases and hospitalizations have increased across the country, Hayes accused the White House on Twitter of not caring about the American people  "Right now, if we had [an] administration that cared one whit about protecting Americans there would be national coordinated messaging all over the place about making Thanksgiving virtual this year (or outdoors where weather permits)! But there is none because they don't care," Hayes wrote.  CNN DOESN'T SOUND ALARM ON COVID 'SUPERSPREADERS' AS THOUSANDS CELEBRATE BIDEN WIN IN THE STREETS Critics piled on the "All In" host for wanting to quash in-person Thanksgiving celebrations.  "This is clinically sociopathic," reacted Omri Ceren, national security adviser for Sen.
