Corona virus alert

I’m concerned that so many in the US are planning to either travel on Thanksgiving, or are joining family and/or friends for the traditional meal. This is a very bad idea. It could kill your friends and family. I hope you’ll heed the CDC directive just out today. Don’t travel. Stay home. Be safe. There is always next year… You need to be very careful so you and your family can get to the time when the vaccine is available. It is totally up to you. Please chose carefully. It is only this one thanksgiving…it is not so hard to wait til next year.💕

    It would be better than inside. But still somewhat of a risk from what I’ve read. It’s all the shared serving implements and food dishes and the fact you can’t eat and drink with a mask on. I personally wouldn’t chance it with the amount of virus around right now. I hope you have a happy thanksgiving! Soon this will be behind us. And we have next year!

    Great plan. If we all do what you do a lot more of us won’t die. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday too. All about food and family. Stay safe everyone!

    Absolutely agree! Thanksgiving is my favorite time of year to come together with family just like the next and I miss them dearly, but its not worth the risk for anyone. But taking personal responsibility is about all we can do at this point. So this year we will be spending some time video chatting over a meal, a little trivia/drinks, and call it wrap for extended family time. At home, it will then be some yummy “seconds”, Netlfix, and some ZZZ’s! Be safe everyone. <3

    Hi Casey,
    Yes, we are adults…we know the risks. And so we can surely wait. There is always next year which we hope will be better! 🤞

    Well said, we have the same feeling and family can wait to see us. We can celebrate any time if we’re safe, when we’re safe.

    I know Vanessa. And because you are staying home….there will be a chance we will live to get the vaccine and your loved ones will still be alive for you all to celebrate. It’s hard, but it’s not that long to wait. Or skip one year… it won’t kill us. I miss my family too😢

    Audrey, you made me laugh out loud! Durn tootin’ it’s just a poultry dinner. And people need to get over the fact that just because they want it right now, wah wah wah, that they will suffer no consequences because of their reckless actions. Sigh. Keep yourself safe.

    Sadly you’re right Shirley. I’m just hoping to shake up some folks if I can. The idea you could be planning a funeral as a result of your need to have it all just like it was and right now! Is incredible… you keep yourself safe. It’s all you can do.

    We’re staying home. Haven’t seen friends or family from home in a year now, but it’s not worth traveling right now.

    Right? Its a darn poultry dinner. Who cares? I’d rather not have my son over and get my hubby or I sick.
    Its a nice 4 day weekend. I can binge “The Crown”

    It amazes me how many people totally ignore there is a virus. I just had someone stop by to tell me they were headed out to have Thanksgiving with their family in another state. It is on the news day in and day out about the virus yet people refuse to social distance, refuse to wear a mask, refuse to avoid large gatherings. Our Governor Desantis in Florida just does NOTHING.
    When I go shopping I am very careful to be aware of the people around me to avoid those ignoring the common sense things to do. I shop during Senior hours in stores that require masks or I shop online. I do my very best to follow the guidelines but without everyone or the majority of people doing the same I do not think there will be improvements.
