[ARCHIVED] State health officials release guide to safer Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to celebrate the people closest to you. As COVID-19 cases continue to rise throughout Colorado, it’s important to do everything possible to keep yourself and your loved ones safe while celebrating Thanksgiving.
Nov. 17, 2020
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) advises Coloradans to only interact in-person with people from their household this Thanksgiving to help slow the alarming spread of COVID-19. This holiday season is an opportunity to reimagine what togetherness can look like and come up with creative ways to celebrate loved ones while making sure they stay healthy for many more years to come.
Dos and don’ts for Thanksgiving celebrations:
- Do cook and eat a special meal with members of your immediate household.
- Do video chat or talk on the phone with friends and family who don’t live with you.
- Do wear a mask and keep 6 feet of distance from others while grocery shopping for your Thanksgiving feast.
- Don’t travel to visit family and friends in other households.
