In a move I doubt surprises anyone, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention officially recommended people don’t travel this Thanksgiving.

The agency made the announcement this morning.

“The tragedy that could happen is that one of your family members is coming to this family gathering and they could end up severely ill, hospitalized or dying. And we don’t want that to happen. These times are tough, it’s been a long outbreak, almost 11 months, and we understand people are tired.

“We understand that people want to see their family and relatives and do it as they’ve always done it. But this year we’re asking them to limit their travel.”

–Dr. Henry Walke, CDC COVID-19 Incident Manager (USA Today)

You can read more on the CDC’s website.

  1. people have had it and following all of the CDC and liberal states and cities guidelines are not eradicating it!!! crazy to again stay in for ?????

  2. Lol, who believes those clowns anymore? There can’t possibly be an American left with a brain who listens to anything they say.

    Traveling for sure. Flying to an island for a long weekend. Flying for Christmas too (South America is open, so, going to head there)

  3. We’re having a major family reunion next week. Family coming in from all over the country. Expecting over a hundred. CDC, thanks but no thanks. You idiots have proven you have no idea what you’re talking about. You stay home. We’ll be enjoying our Thanksgiving party.

    • @Tom – Let me know when you have the many Zoom funerals – I will send my condolences! 🙁

        • René does. I do, too. So do my wife and daughter. We don’t especially enjoy it. If that makes us sheep, well, it’s not so baaa-d (compared to having COVID).
