In a telebriefing held Thursday, 질병 통제 및 예방 센터 (질병 통제 예방 센터) warned against traveling to visit relatives and friends this Thanksgiving and holiday season and urged those with possible 코로나 바이러스 symptoms or other illnesses to stay home.
“With Thanksgiving approaching our hearts and minds turn to visiting family and friends,”박사. Henry Walke, the agency’s COVID-19 incident manager, 말했다, during the briefing. “Amid this critical phase, the CDC is recommending against travel during the Thanksgiving period.”
Walke added that for those who do decide to travel, the health agency recommends doing so “as safely as possible,” which includes wearing a mask while in public, maintaining social distancing and washing hands often with soap and water.
“Our hope is that the recommendations posted online today can help people celebrate as safely as possible — all Americans want to do the right things to protect our families, even when there are hard decisions to be made,” 그는 말했다.
