Experts: No need to cancel Thanksgiving, but play it safe and create new outdoor traditions
Health experts say a safe Thanksgiving during a pandemic is possible, but they know their advice is tough to swallow.
According to U.S. health officials, small household gatherings have contributed to the rise in COVID-19 cases, but there's no need to cancel the holiday.
Spending time with loved ones is important for health too.
Coronavirus spreads more easily when people are crowded together inside, so experts encourage new outdoor traditions, such as hiking as a family.
Guest lists for indoor feasts should be small enough so people can sit six feet apart while unmasked.
