Milton Neighbors share how they’ll be observing Thanksgiving in 2020 – POLL RESULTS

Massachusetts currently has an indoor limit of 10 people for indoor gatherings.

From the CDC:

Celebrating virtually or with members of your own household (who are consistently taking measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19) poses the lowest risk for spread. Your household is anyone who currently lives and shares common spaces in your housing unit (such as your house or apartment).

This can include family members, as well as roommates or people who are unrelated to you. People who do not currently live in your housing unit, such as college students who are returning home from school for the holidays, should be considered part of different households. In-person gatherings that bring together family members or friends from different households, including college students returning home, pose varying levels of risk.

Organizers and attendees of larger events should consider the risk of virus spread based on event size (number of attendees and other factors) and take steps to reduce the possibility of infection, as outlined in the Considerations for Events and Gatherings.

“My extended family will be on zoom.”

“Immediate family that lives in my household. No sense risking lives for a dinner.”

“Thankful that less holiday travel means less carbon spewed into the atmosphere.”

“We will drop-off a pie outside my in-laws house and wave to them from a distance. Otherwise, it will just be the two of us this year.”

“One day with immediate family. Then one day with 4 close friends.”

“Celebrating with people living in my house only.”
