Due to COVID-19, Thanksgiving will be celebrated differently this year.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving this year is to celebrate with people in your household. 
Below are some other ways to celebrate the holiday:

1. Go virtual

Host a virtual Thanksgiving meal with friends and family who don’t live with you. Schedule a time to share a meal together virtually. Have people share recipes and show their turkey, dressing, or other dishes they prepared.

2. Watch TV and play games

Watch television and play games with people in your household. Watch Thanksgiving Day parades, sports, and movies at home. Find a fun game to play.

3. Give

Safely prepare traditional dishes and deliver them to family and neighbors in a way that does not involve contact with others (for example, leave them on the porch). 

4. Gratitude

Participate in a gratitude activity, like writing down things you are grateful for and sharing with your friends and family.

5. Shopping

Shop online sales the day after Thanksgiving and days leading up to the winter holidays. Use contactless services for purchased items, like curbside pick-up.
Shop in open air markets staying 6 feet away from others.
